The Bureau of Meteorology's 2007 winter climate summary for South Australia reported that the season's rainfall was well below average across the state.
The South-eastern Australia Seasonal Rainfall Outlook from the Bureau of Meteorology (23 August) predicted that total spring (September to November) rainfall for the southeast of South Australia has a 60% to 65% chance of being less than average, while the probability for the rest of the state being drier than average is about 50% to 55%.
On September 11, Premier Rann announced that a very slight improvement in predicted rainfalls in the Adelaide Hills would allow easing of Adelaide's water restrictions.
The total water storage in Adelaide's reservoirs at 3 September 2007 (the end of winter and beginning of spring) was 79% of capacity, compared with 55% at the same time in 2006.
