PARTLY CLOUDY dow in one house and knocked tiles loose from the roof of an­other prop­erty. And the Moscow Cir­cus per­for­mance in Bonython Park had to be can­celled last night.

By 11pm, the Coun­try Fire Ser­vice had re­sponded to more than 125 in­ci­dents in­clud­ing fallen trees and flood­ing.

The State Emer­gency Ser- vice was called out to pro­vide sand­bags as wa­ter rose to­wards prop­er­ties across the metropoli­tan area.

High winds and heavy rain were pushed ahead of a cold front which stretched for hun­dreds of kilo­me­tres across the lower half of the state.

The front will bring a chilly week­end, with Ade­laide not ex­pected to get above 15C un­til the mid­dle of next week.

To­mor­row’s fore­cast is for up to 6mm on rain­fall with 2535km/h winds.

Mount Gam­bier was bat­tered by 90km/h wind gusts through­out the after­noon, black­ing out al­most 1800 prop­er­ties on the western side of the town. An­other 100 prop­er­ties were with­out power in Mil­li­cent, Tan­tanoola and Ca­nunda.

More than 15mm of rain fell on Nara­coorte and Mount Gam­bier over a short pe­riod in the after­noon.

Nep­tune Is­land in the Spencer Gulf en­dured gusts of 96km/h as the storm front passed over the re­mote is­land.

The cold front is one of sev­eral formed in the Great Aus­tralian Bight to bat­ter South Aus­tralia be­fore head­ing to­ward the eastern states.
