Venneta Pakula, forecaster at the SA Weather Forecast says it's normal to have rain fall at this time of the year.

However, she says the intensity of the rain fall could be a bit unusual and might have a link to climate change.

Because of climate change we might see patterns where we have flooding, rough winds and drought compared to previous years.
