Capetonians can expect cold and wet weather this weekend after the South African Weather Service (SAWS) issued a Yellow Level 2 warning for parts of the Western and Northern Cape on Saturday, December 4.
According to the SAWS, scattered to widespread thundershowers due to a cut-off low-pressure weather system are expected over the north and central parts of Western Cape, (Cape Winelands, Central Karoo) and the southern Namakwa tomorrow.
“Some of these storms may be severe, leading to periods of heavy downpours associated with rainfall accumulations of 20mm to 35mm, lightning strikes, and gusty winds,” SAWS indicated.
