WINTER does not officially start until Sunday, but a front bringing showers will be expected in Millicent until tomorrow.
Bureau of Meteorology meteorologist Jenny Horvat said it was not unusual for typical winter weather-type weather to occur in the lower South East during autumn.
“We have already had some gale warnings for the South East coast,” Ms Horvat said.
“The Mount Gambier airport had recorded 81.8mm in the month of May until 9am on Thursday last week.
“Most years the May rainfall is in the 80ml-90mm range while the 2019 recording at the Mount Gambier airport was 119.8mm.
“The mean maximum temperature for May has been 15.9 degrees and this is slightly below the long-term average.”
Millicent does not have a weather station, but 19.2mm of rain fell at the Mount Gambier airport in 24 hours to 9am on Thursday last week.
Flash flooding occurred in Millicent on Mount Gambier Road, Stuckey Street and Williams Road along with Beach Road at Beachport.
Emergency services were called to Clay Wells Road at Kangaroo Inn on Thursday to clear a fallen tree from the roadway.
