Australia Sat 1 Dec 2018 SA: Storm brings super-record wind in Snowtown. A supercell thunderstorm moving rapidly across Snowtown in Mid North SA produced a wind gust of 156km/h at 18.11 CDT. Snowtown, 125km NNW of Adelaide, lay under the strongest part of the supercell, seen in this BoM radar clip as the near-black core to the north of the head of Gulf St Vincent. The wind gust, which appears from video and the nature of damage to have been related to strong straight-line winds rather than a tornado, easily topped the Snowtown AWS's previous all-time record of 111km/h in 15 years of operation. The football club lost the roof of its just-completed pavilion and there was some structural and tree damage in the town of 650.

The supercell was part of a line of storms that crossed the state after a day of bushfires and strong winds. Media reports said over 8,500 properties lost power. [news.com.au, ABC]
