Adelaide Hills dodge floods after warning

A forecast deluge hasn't hit the Adelaide Hills, with the Bureau of Meteorology saying river levels remain steady and don't present a risk of flooding.

The bureau on Saturday evening issued a final flood watch for the Mt Lofty Ranges and the mid-north and northeast pastoral districts.

"A front and associated upper trough is moving across the east of the state this evening with another system forecast to move over the state again on Monday and Tuesday," it states.

"(But) observed rainfall over the Mt Lofty Ranges has been less than expected and is not likely to exceed around 10 millimetres."

An SES spoksesman told AAP "there's not much to report".

"So far so good," he said.

"It doesn't look like there's been much rain at all and certainly we haven't increased our operational tempo."

The BoM had been expecting up to 30mm of rain on Saturday, which it feared could cause rivers across the hills to rise, with the prospect of further damage.

More than 100mm of rain fell in some parts of the Mt Lofty Ranges on Wednesday, causing flooding across a wide area.

About 80 homes were damaged along with a number of roads. The bill is expected to run into millions of dollars.
