Weather conditions will begin to cool in the SW Cape from Friday as a cold front passes over the region. The front is forecast to lead to 2-5mm of rain over the SW Cape and Cape Town from Friday afternoon and there is the chance of 10-20mm near the mountains. Ahead of the front on Friday, hot NW winds are expected to develop over the eastern interior of the Western Cape, the western interior of the Eastern Cape, eastern parts of the Eastern Cape and southern and central parts of KZN. Over these areas temperatures in the mid 30Cs are expected and may reach the high 30Cs in places – fresh SW winds should tepid the temperatures along the coast over the Garden Route and western coastal parts of the Eastern Cape.

 

On Saturday a second burst of showers are possible for the SW Cape with more widespread showers and cool to cold conditions developing over the Garden Route and coastal parts of the Eastern Cape. By Saturday evening, the effects of the front will be felt over eastern parts of the Eastern Cape and southern parts of KZN and as the air behind the front collides with the warmer and more humid sub-tropical airmass, there is a risk of widespread and possibly energetic thunderstorms over these areas.

 

On Sunday and Monday, widespread thunderstorms or showers are expected to persist over KZN and should push into Mpumulanga, Gauteng, eastern parts of the North West and Free State and also over parts of Limpopo. During Sunday, showers are forecast to have eased over the Southern and SW Cape with cold conditions expected over the interior of the Eastern Cape and over southern parts of the Free State with temperatures struggling to reach the mid-teens in places.

Widespread falls of 20-40mm are expected over southern and north eastern parts of the country between Saturday and Tuesday with the chance of up to 80mm in places.
