The hot weather Cape Town has been experiencing lately has left locals feeling overheated, but we’re in luck because this weekend is predicted to be a rainy one.

Before the cooler weather and rain come in, Friday is predicted to be a particularly hot day with temperatures reaching a high of 29°C.

Saturday has a 80% chance of precipitation with a low of 17°C and a high of 24°C, Sunday has a 40% chance of precipitation with a high of 22°C and a low 17°C.

Locals are not the only ones being affected by the heat as dam levels have continued their downward trend again this week, with collective storage officially dipping below the 60% mark.

Dam levels are at 59.8% as of January 30 2019 with Theewaterskloof dam dipping the lowest at 46.4%.
