Weather Warning: MORE Rain Expected For South Australia

Source: AAP/Staff Writers

More heavy rain is set to hit flooded towns on the outskirts of Adelaide after a short respite over the weekend.

Rain started falling in the soaked areas along Gawler River catchment on Sunday evening, with the Bureau of Meteorology predicting peak falls of 60mm at the Mount Lofty Ranges on Monday.

River levels had been receding after a short break in the rain over the weekend, with numerous roads reopening in the area.

But as rain returns, the threat of more flooding is high.

"There is a chance that the Gawler River will break out and impact on homes," SA State Emergency Service chief officer Chris Beattie said on Sunday.

Crews have been stationed at Gawler and Virginia, north of Adelaide, monitoring the situation and helping residents prepare with sandbags.

Around 100mm of rain is expected to fall over the Mount Lofty Ranges and Adelaide Hills by Tuesday afternoon.
