Rain bearing down on SA

Rob Sharpe, Thursday July 11, 2013 - 12:36 EST

Cloud is building across South Australia before rain soaks the state.

A low and trough is building in WA with showers and storms spreading into western parts of SA today.

On Friday and Saturday, cloud and rain will gradually move east across the state in bands, bringing further rain on top of the good falls in previous months.

By Sunday, the majority of Agricultural regions will have gained 15-30mm. Barely any locations will see less than 10mm with this system.

Showers will grace coastal SA on Monday before a dry day on Tuesday.

Further rain is expected on Wednesday and Thursday with a strong cold front coming through. This front could bring b another dose of substantial rain, with more of a focus on southern agricultural than the north.

In a weeks time there will be very few farmers crying out for rain in South Australia.
