Adelaide has recorded wind speeds of at least 55km/h (30 knots) in each of the last three days, making it the longest spell of windy days since 2010.
Wind gusted to 63km/h today, 72km/h yesterday and 57k/h on Tuesday.
It has been significantly windier in the surrounding areas, including the Murraylands and Yorke Peninsula. Gusts reached 98km/h at Mt Crawford on the Mount Lofty Ranges and 100km/h at Murray Bridge and Strathalbyn yesterday.
This was Strathalbyn's windiest day in nine years.
Edithburgh's 104km/h wind gust this afternoon made this its windiest day in 10 years. They've recorded two 100km/h wind gusts only 24 hours apart, making it the windiest back-to-back days in more than a decade.
Minlaton and Naracoorte's 100km/h gust yesterday are three-year highs. Lameroo's 89km/h is a two-year high
The windiest places in the state have been off the mainland coast. Neptune Island recorded a 117km/h gust and Cape Willoughby on Kangaroo Island recorded a 115km/h gust.
There is another burst of potentially damaging winds to come, between about 9pm and midnight tonight, mainly affecting Kangaroo Island and southern parts of Eyre and Yorke peninsulas, the Fleurieu Peninsula and the South East.
The second intense low in as many days will bring this burst of winds together with further showers.
This will put extra strain on emergency services and energy providers who have been battling to clear fallen trees, patch up roofs and restore power.
Tomorrow colder westerly winds will ease and become a fair bit lighter than the last few days. Wind will ease further on Saturday and become fairly light on Sunday and Monday as a high pressure system takes over.
This weekend's lighter winds will be accompanied by sunnier skies, just in time for the footy and the Royal Adelaide Show.
