It was obvious from the start that conditions at Gayfield were farcical. Home goalkeeper Darren Jamieson conceded a corner when his goal-kick blew back behind his goal.
Referee Craig Napier brought a halt to proceedings and the match will be played again on Tuesday.
The wind was also a factor at Station Park but Forfar Athletic were unconcerned as their 2-0 win over Airdrieonians moved them joint-second.
Forfar’s first-half pressure paid off when Gary Irvine scored with a 30-yard shot four minutes from half-time. Adam Eckersley made it 2-0 on 72 minutes with a left-foot shot that took the game out of Airdrie’s reach.
Stenhousemuir hoisted themselves off the bottom of the table with a 1-0 home win over Montrose.
Greg Hurst netted the only goal of the contest after 68 minutes, guiding a shot into the bottom corner of the net to mark his debut. He almost added a second two minutes later but saw his header strike the crossbar.
