The Mother City has been waiting in anticipation for some refreshing rains predicted to hit the Western Cape on Friday, but recent forecasts show the weather may be slightly rowdier than expected.

The City of Cape Town’s Disaster Management says it has been advised of heavy downpours and thundershowers across the Western Cape on Friday. SA Weather Service has informed officials that the showers will hit the Cape Metro and Grabouw area from as early as 4.00am until roughly 11.00am. These conditions may result in heavy downpours and possibly cause flash and localised flooding that could affect homes and roads.
Weather-related emergencies can be directed to the City’s 107 call centre by dialling 021 480 7700 from a cellphone or 107 from a landline. Picture: Pixabay
