The Port Lincoln State Emergency Service had one callout during wild weather conditions on Wednesday, but still warn people to be vigilant in the next few days, particularly in coastal areas.

A cold front moved across South Australia on Wednesday bringing rain and strong wind.

The Bureau of Meteorology recorded maximum wind gusts of 89 km/h at Port Lincoln Airport just after 4.15pm and 80 km/h at Cummins Airport just before 2.15pm.

Of the many callouts across the state on Wednesday, only one callout was made on the Eyre Peninsula with Port Lincoln SES responding to a call at a property north of Poonindie just after 3pm.

A crew of five SES volunteers worked to secure sheets of iron from lifting off a hay shed on the property and finished the job in a short time.

SES Port Lincoln unit manager Max Coulson said the bureau has warned of high seas between four to eight metres to build up along coast areas in the next few days.

He said locals and visitors were encouraged to stay back from the water's edge.
