From fires to floods, Adelaide’s weather has got a mind of its own.

From today, the heavens are opening as we expect a dramatic downpour. There’s nothing more satisfying than a good thunderstorm, but this one might be a little more extreme.

You might need to keep the pot plants indoors for this rainfall as Adelaide could be getting up to 25mm of rain between Thursday and Sunday. For those in the Hills, you could be receiving up to 60mm.

Alongside the soaking, the temperature is going to plummet from 27 to 20 across the weekend. Might be time to get the winter gear out a little early…

The heavy rainfall can cause flash flooding as we saw in January, so stay safe and up to date with the weather movements.
