In a statement, The Bureau of Meteorology's Kylie Egan said parts of the state, including the Eyre Peninsula, have experienced above median rainfall, with a higher chance of the conditions to continue during winter in SA.

The SES says risks can be reduced or avoided by spending time planning and getting properties storm ready.

The service advises homeowners to inspect and fix any damage to roofs, check gutters, downpipes and drains are clear, checking your insurance policy is current and adequate and putting together an emergency kit.

More advice on how to prepare for severe storms can be found on the SES website.
