For people in Mount Lofty Ranges, Kangaroo Island, Murraylands, Upper South East, Lower South East and parts of Mid North and Riverland districts.

Issued at 4:59 pm Thursday, 30 April 2020.

Squally, locally damaging winds developing during Friday

Weather Situation: A large multi-centred low pressure system will rapidly deepen south of Tasmania overnight, resulting in a strengthening of the southwesterly winds across southeast SA.

Strong to damaging winds, reaching 55-70 km/h at times with peak gusts in excess of 90 km/h, are forecast to develop near the far southern coastal fringe overnight, then extend inland across the remainder of the warning area from late Friday morning. Damaging winds are most likely to be associated with showers. Winds will ease later Friday afternoon but remain fresh to strong and gusty into Saturday, particularly about the coast.

Locations which may be affected include Mount Gambier, Murray Bridge, Kingscote, Naracoorte, Victor Harbor, Lameroo, Meningie, Bordertown and Burra.

The State Emergency Service advises that people should:
* Move vehicles under cover or away from trees;
* Secure or put away loose items around your property.
* Stay indoors, away from windows, while conditions are severe.
