Port Lincoln and Lower Eyre Peninsula residents have been warned to prepare for a cold front moving through the area this evening.

The Bureau of Meteorology has issued a severe weather warning for parts of Lower Eyre Peninsula, Yorke Peninsula, Mount Lofty Ranges and Murraylands districts as well as Kangaroo Island and upper and lower south east districts.

A fast moving cold front is predicted to move across southern coastal districts late this evening and early Wednesday morning with winds expected to average 50 to 70 kilometres per hour with gusts in excess of 90 km/h.

Port Lincoln is forecast to be a location which may be affected.

This comes less than a week after a cold front moved through much of the state last Thursday, including Eyre Peninsula with gusts of 87 km/h recorded at Port Lincoln Airport.

The State Emergency Service has advised people to move vehicles under cover, secure or put away loose items around properties and to stay indoors while conditions were severe.
