It was also the wettest day for the Nullarbor since 2011 – recording 62mm – and the wettest day at Port Lincoln aerodrome since 1995, where 50mm of rain fell.

Adelaide received just over 13mm of rain overnight, with more showers expected today.

The rain is expected to ease this afternoon, with the weather bureau forecasting showers and a maximum temperature of 25 degrees.
