That little burst of Spring-like weather is not expected to last too much longer, with sunshine giving way to strong winds and rain across parts of the state.

A cold front moving across the state will bring strong to damaging north to northwesterly winds across SA.

The front is expected to hit Adelaide by mid-to-late afternoon, bringing with it showers and isolated thunderstorms, along with wind gusts of 80-100km/h.

Adelaide should expect the strongest winds from around late afternoon to late evening.

A severe weather warning has been issued for people in the Adelaide metropolitan area and Mount Lofty Ranges along with Lower Eyre Peninsula, Yorke Peninsula, Mid North, Kangaroo Island, Lower South East and parts of Eastern Eyre Peninsula, Murraylands and Upper South East districts.

The SES advises anybody in these areas to move vehicles under cover or away from trees, secure loose items around your property and to stay indoors, away from windows when the conditions are severe.
