The South African Weather Service (SAWS) has indicated that Western Cape residents will need to brace themselves for chilly and wet weather in the coming days.
An intense cold front had been forecast to hit the shores of the coast on Sunday evening bringing with it colder weather and plenty of rain. The conditions are expected to continue until Wednesday, as per EWN.
However, heavy rains could pose a threat to low-lying areas and roads with the SAWS warning of potential flooding. The public has been urged to stay vigilant while driving, noting that an increase in traffic could be a possibility as motorists navigate wet roads.
According to News24, the Mother City, along with parts of the Cape Winelands and Overberg, can expect to see between 50mm and 80mm of rainfall over the next three days.
