Johannesburg - A chilly week lies ahead for most of the country as a cold front is approaching, the SA Weather Service said on Monday.

It was expected to hit the Western Cape first before spreading to other parts of the country, senior forecaster Ezekiel Sebego said.

"Conditions are expected to start deteriorating over parts of the country from Tuesday onwards."

Sebego said it would be rainy, very cold, and windy over the south-western parts of the Western Cape. By Tuesday this would spread to the remainder of the Western Cape, southern parts of the Northern Cape and western parts of the Eastern Cape.

On Wednesday, the Western and Eastern Cape were expected to experience wide-spread showers. Heavy rains were likely along the Cape south coast, affecting the Cape Winelands, the Overberg and Eden district municipalities in the Western Cape, as well as Kou-Kamma and Kouga local municipalities in the Eastern Cape.

Residents in those areas were warned of flooding. Snowfalls were expected in the south-western parts of Western and Northern Cape on Wednesday morning, spreading east towards Lesotho by Thursday.

"The public are advised that such snowfalls are highly likely to result in the temporary closure of certain mountain passes," said Sebego.

Gauteng, Limpopo, and Mpumalanga would experience mild conditions until Thursday.

The chill was expected to arrive in Gauteng by Thursday. Conditions would be cold and windy on Friday.

"Cold conditions are expected in Gauteng on Women’s Day on Friday when there will also be a likelihood of light showers."

Limpopo would experience cold conditions on Friday, Sebego said.
