Damaging winds and heavy rain have been forecasted for South Australia for the next five days, with the SES urging people to take precautions before the fronts hit.
Robert Charlton, South Australia SES State Duty Officer, said people should secure or put away items in yards to help minimise potential property damage.
"We all know weather can be unpredictable, and I think we've all seen the videos of trampolines and outdoor furniture being blown around during intense wind gusts,'' he said.
"While we are not expecting destructive winds over the coming days, it pays to err on the side of caution.
"For the next couple of days, the SASES will be at a heightened level of preparedness and we will be constantly monitoring conditions.
"We will be ready to respond if required.''
Damaging winds, showers and thunderstorms are being predicted as a string of cold fronts hit the state from the west.
Wind gusts of around 90km/h had been predicted over western areas of the state on Tuesday morning and will extend into the Eyre Peninsula, Flinders Rangers and eastern areas during the day.
The winds should ease briefly on Wednesday morning before increasing as a new trough moves across the Great Australian Bight.
