News

The Bureau of Meteorology has revoked a severe weather warning for the Adelaide metropolitan area after a huge weekend downpour.

It comes after the BoM’s Adelaide (Glen Osmond) station recorded 54.8mm of rain on Sunday while Adelaide (West Terrace) copped 43mm.

The 43mm at West Terrace yesterday represents around 60 per cent of the station’s average June rainfall.

The downpour saw a section of Greenhill Road south of the park lands closed off to eastbound traffic due to flooding.

Cudlee Creek Road in Cudlee Creek was also temporarily closed due to a landslide near the Hannaford Road intersection. Police said it reopened around 7.20pm on Sunday.

The SES responded to around 90 incidents on Sunday, including overnight flooding at the Burnside Village shopping centre in the eastern suburbs.

The BoM this morning revoked a severe weather warning which was in place for the Adelaide metro region.

Maximum temperatures in the metro area are set to remain around 14 degrees for the rest of the week.

The latest bout of wild weather comes only a week after a ‘mini tornado’ struck the Salisbury area, damaging around 65 properties and leaving more than 4000 homes without power.
