SA starts July with some healthy rain

Jacobus Cronje, Saturday July 8, 2017 - 14:58 EST

After a very dry June, the southeastern parts of South Australia are receiving a good dousing.

Several southern towns only saw around 10-15mm of rainfall during June. For coasts, peninsulas and the adjacent interior east of Port Lincoln, June rain was around 25mm. Only very isolated pockets in the southeast picked up 25-50mm.

A low pressure system and associated trough currently tracking into western Victoria has produced 10-15mm over the Peninsulas, Adelaide, Mt Lofty Ranges and the Lower South East during the last 48 hours, with up to 10mm falling over remaining southern parts. At least another 5-10mm of falls are expected over the southeastern parts of the state as the system slowly tracks east.

Rainfall in coming days should be isolated to the coast and adjacent interior, with generally clear and settled conditions expected elsewhere in the state.
