The West Coast is expected to experience severe winds as a cold front moves west across the state on Friday evening.

The Bureau of Meteorology has issued a severe weather warning for damaging winds for districts including Lower Eyre Peninsula and the West Coast, as well as parts of Eastern Eyre Peninsula.

The bureau has forecast a vigorous cold front to move over central and eastern districts on Friday evening, with a cold and vigorous west to southwesterly airstream to develop over the south of the state.

Potentially damaging winds averaging 50 to 60 kilometres per hour will first develop about the far western coasts from early Friday evening before affecting remaining exposed coasts.
