“Widespread rainfall of 15 to 35mm is expected over the southern parts of the Western Cape and the south-western parts of the Eastern Cape. 24-hour accumulated rainfall of up to 40 to 50mm is also likely along coastal and adjacent mountainous regions of the eastern Garden Route District of the Western Cape and the south coast and adjacent interior of the Eastern Cape which may result in localised flooding of susceptible areas and roads.”

The SAWS has issued several warnings for the coming weekend.

KwaZulu-Natal MEC for Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (Cogta) Sipho Hlomuka has placed the province’s disaster management teams on alert in anticipation of snowfall.

Hlomuka urged residents across KwaZulu-Natal on Friday to exercise extreme caution as weather conditions are expected to deteriorate due to an incoming cold front.

These weather conditions may affect road conditions and the flow of traffic, causing congestion and delays, and the possible closure of sections of the N3 Toll Route in the interest of safety.

Extra care should be taken when driving in this weather.
