Capetonians can expected cooler temperatures after this hot weekend, with lows of 16°C and highs of 21°C.

There is a 70% chance of scattered showers followed by two days of warmer weather on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Rain is always welcome in the city, not only for cooler temperatures but also in the hopes that they might bolster the dams levels, if only by a little.
