The South African Weather Service is predicting rainfall heading for the drought-stricken Western Cape late on Friday. According to the weather service, there is an 80% of rainfall in the province, with predictions of 10-20mm of rain in most areas and up to 30-50mm possible near mountains and catchment areas.
