SOUTH Australia has recorded its driest September in 12 years, and one local farmer said it’s causing the Adelaide Plains as much trouble as some of the worst droughts in its history.
TEMPERATURES experienced in the local area were a full degree higher than usual in 2017, as South Australia recorded its fifth-warmest year on record.
LOCAL residents were treated to a spectacular display of nature last week, when a stand-alone thunderstorm cloud swept across
the region in broad daylight.
GAWLER gardens are soaking in the recent unseasonable downpours, as the local region experiences one of its wettest summers on record.
FOLLOWING the heatwave that hit the region over Christmas time, temperatures are expected to peak again on Saturday at 40 degrees Celsius, with some stormy conditions also possible.
LAST week’s storm marked the end of a wet and wild year, featuring a wrath of significant weather events which affected local areas.
THE Gawler region received a significant amount of rain last month, almost double the amount recorded in July last year.
PARTS of Gawler were left battered yesterday, as heavy rain and wild winds lashed the area, bringing down trees and power lines.
