Floodwaters have left a number of roads impassable across South Australia, prompting a call from police for motorists to take care.

A vigorous cold front moved across the state late on Tuesday bringing heavy rain and gale-force winds.

Localised flooding was reported across a wide area from Kapunda, north of Adelaide, through the Adelaide Hills and south to Strathalbyn.

A flood watch for the Mt Lofty Ranges also remained in place heading into Wednesday, though weather conditions were expected to moderate.

The severe weather also brought down numerous trees, keeping emergency services busy.

While late on Tuesday about 5000 properties were without electricity because of damage to power lines.

The Bureau of Meteorology says South Australia is experiencing one of its windiest and wettest winters for many years and the weather patterns are not expected to change significantly in the coming weeks.
