The heat coupled with an increase in water consumption has continued to put strain on the storage level of Cape Town’s five major dams – overall levels are at 75.1% as of today.

Theewaterskloof is at just over 58% storage capacity, Steenbras Upper has slipped to 74.5% and Steenbras Lower is at 88% with other dams dipping slightly but staying above 90%.

The hot weather is expected to continue in Cape Town till next week Monday, with possible rain coming in on Tuesday.

Sunday will, however, usher in some of the highest temperatures Cape Town has seen yet, before locals are given a breather.
