The Bureau of Meteorology issued a severe weather warning for districts including Lower and Eastern Eyre Peninsula on Monday afternoon after a strong and fast moving cold front was forecast to enter western South Australia Monday night.

Ahead of the front, damaging north to northwesterly winds averaging 50 to 70 kilometres per hour have been forecast with gusts of about 100 km/h possible over Eyre Peninsula from sunrise Tuesday.

The front will move east during the afternoon, reaching eastern and northern parts of the warning area.

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