Steenbras Lower is at 101.5% followed by Berg River at 99.2% and Steenbras Upper at 91.2%. The Mother City’s lowest dam is Theewaterskloof at 72.5%.

The forecast for the weekend shows an increase in temperatures even higher than previous expectations.

Sunday will also be a warm day with a high of 26°C and a low of 13°C expected.
