Locals and Campervan Hire Adelaide Users Expect a Snowy Friday

For those who have signed up for campervan hire Adelaide services, heads up because the South Australian capital is likely to experience a cold snap. The Bureau of Meteorology has predicted a very chilly Friday for citizens of the region. So if you’re planning to visit the area, make sure that you bundle up nicely to avoid getting the sniffles.

This weather pattern is also expected to bring snow to certain parts of Adelaide Hills and Flinders Ranges, according to Simon Timke, a duty forecaster at the bureau. He said snowfall could be expected on the peaks above 600 metres at Mt Lofty and 700 metres further north. It is actually quite unusual for Adelaide to experience snow, which is why some people, including cheap campervan hire users, are looking forward to it. However, Timke warned that snow is not the only weather phenomenon to visit SA tomorrow.

He said damaging winds with gusts of up to 110 kilometres per hour are also likely to occur across the state due to a strong cold front coming in from the west. If you have obtained campervan hire Adelaide services and are planning to head out, it is advisable that you postpone your plans for the time being and reschedule whatever it is you are planning on doing for the day.

The areas that are expected to suffer the brunt of these damaging cold winds include Adelaide Metropolitan, Mount Lofty Ranges, Lower Eyre Peninsula, Eastern Eyre Peninsula, Yorke Peninsula, Kangaroo Island, and Flinders. Residents and cheap campervan hire users in Mid North, Riverland, Murraylands, Upper South East, Lower South East and parts of the West Coast and North East Pastoral districts are also advised to brace themselves for the strong winds.

Locals and business who own vehicles, including campervan hire Adelaide companies, are encouraged by the State Emergency Service to secure their vehicles and move them under cover and away from trees. They are also advised to fasten loose items and remain indoors while the weather conditions are at their worst to avoid potential accidents and injuries.

But for locals and campervan hire Adelaide users who wish to enjoy the snow, don’t be disheartened. The Bureau of Meteorology said conditions are most likely to improve considerably later in the day. This could give you the opportunity to have some fun in the snow. So keep yourself glued to the TV or radio for the latest news update and check the weather so you’ll know when it is safe to venture outside.
