The South African Weather Service has issued a Yellow Level 2 warning to residents in the Western Cape as damaging waves are expected to hit Plettenberg Bay and Richards Bay in the morning of 15 August.
“A yellow level 2 warning for damaging waves leading to localised damage to coastal infrastructure and difficulty in navigation at sea is expected between Plettenberg Bay and Richards Bay in the morning,” noted the SAWS.
Along with very cold temperatures expected to hit some parts of the country, the SAWS also issued a Yellow Level 2 for damaging winds which could lead to localised damage to informal settlements, as per IOL.
The warning comes after a weekend filled with light snow, as Matroosberg Nature Reserve recently provided snow lovers with an update. Unfortunately, constant rainfall during the night “came and washed it all away.”
