Up At Mt Lofty, a staggering 65mm had fallen by 9.45am today.
It is Adelaide’s wettest day in more than two years, as well as the wettest June day in six years.
Rain is expected to ease to showers later this afternoon but it won’t dry out for some days, with the Bureau of Meteorology as good as guaranteeing rain until at least Saturday when the chance of rain is estimated at 30 per cent.
