Heavy rains WARNING

The SAWS issued a warning of heavy rain, leading to possible localised flooding, in places in the Cape Metropole, the Overberg and the Cape Winelands from Thursday night into Friday morning.

“The rainfall will remain, especially along the coastal regions of the two provinces,” SAWS forecaster Mbavhi Maliage said at the time.

This will result in an even colder weekend as the cold front moves eastwards, reaching KwaZulu-Natal and the Eastern Cape.

The cold front will also spread through the Free State and move towards Gauteng, Limpopo and Mpumalanga on Sunday.

Peppering of snow set for Eastern Cape

A dusting of snow has been forecast for parts of the Eastern Cape over the weekend amid a cold snap, according to data from the SA Weather Service (SAWS).

SAWS forecaster Kumsa Masizana told News24 that the service’s latest data showed light snowfall between Cradock and Graaff-Reinet in the Eastern Cape on Saturday.

According to SnowReportSA, the light snow will be followed by “a larger event” next week. Light snowfalls on the Western Cape mountains will take place until late on Saturday. According to SnowReportSA, these could also be fairly “low level” at around 1000m in elevation.

There is also a possibility of some flurries around Tiffindell on Saturday morning.
