Damaging winds in the west and north on Thursday

Weather Situation: A deep low pressure system will become centred near the southwest Eyre Peninsula coast overnight tonight then move over eastern Eyre Peninsula during Thursday morning to be centred near northern Spencer Gulf around midday Thursday. Strong to gale force winds will extend around the western and northern flank of the low during Thursday.

Damaging winds, averaging 50-65 km/h at times with peak gusts of 90 to 100 km/h, are forecast in the warning area during Thursday.
Damaging winds will first develop near the coast early Thursday morning and then extend inland over the remainder of the warning area during the day.

Sustained gale force winds are most likely about the coast and elevated terrain. Damaging gusts will be mostly associated with showers and thunderstorms. Conditions will ease from the west during Thursday afternoon.
Areas of raised dust are also possible.

Locations which may be affected include Ceduna, Fowlers Bay, and Streaky Bay from early Thursday morning, then Tarcoola, Roxby Downs, and Woomera after sunrise, and then Leigh
Creek, Marree, and Arkaroola from late morning.

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.
