Wild weather has brought down trees across Adelaide on Sunday night as a long trainband smashed into the coast, bringing winds of 90-100km/h with it.

Lightning has also started grass fires at Edinburgh and Virginia.

The Country Fire Service and State Emergency Service responded to calls about fallen trees.

At both Goodwood and Banksia Park, trees have fallen on homes while at Fairview Park a tree fell over a road and power lines.

The Bureau of Meteorology had issued a severe thunderstorm warning for parts of the Adelaide area.

“A low-pressure trough over central districts is moving eastwards, with associated thunderstorm activity and gusty winds,’ the Bureau said.

“Severe thunderstorms may produce damaging wind gusts of 90 to 100 km/h in the warning area over the next several hours.


“Conditions will ease this evening in western parts of the warning area as the low-pressure trough moves east. Locations which may be affected include Port Pirie, Clare, Murray Bridge, Gawler, Meningie, Jamestown, Karoonda, Keith and Burra.’’
