A RAIN band that covers most of the state has resulted in patchy rainfall in the past few days.

Bureau of Meteorology duty forecaster Naomi Benger said the band stretched from Puktaja in the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands, through to Mount Gambier, but this was being countered with a dry northerly airflow meaning not much moisture was reaching the ground.

She said the band was moving across to the eastern states, leaving a slight chance for shower activity across most areas of the state, particularly the South East and Murraylands.

While this band did not impact on Eyre Peninsula, Dr Benger said a complex low-pressure system in the Great Australian Bight will have an influence on rain in the south-west of SA.

According to BoM figures, the Upper North of SA recorded the highest rainfall totals on Tuesday, with Quorn receiving 16 millimetres and Wilmington 10mm.

In other agricultural areas, Cummins had 5mm, Port Augusta 12mm, Warooka 8mm, Ardrossan 4mm, Laura 4mm, Hamley Bridge 3mm, Parawa 7mm, Alawoona 5mm, Parrakie 10mm, Lucindale 5mm and Kalangadoo 10mm.
