Residents are advised to prepare for an expected cold front tomorrow (Thursday 27 June).

The City’s Disaster Risk Management spokesperson, Charlotte Powell, said a cold front is expected to make landfall over the south-western parts tomorrow night.

“The SA Weather Service forecasts winds of between 65 and 80km/h from tomorrow afternoon, with a potential of winds reaching 85km/h, easing off tomorrow night,” she says.   

Powell said these strong to gale force winds may result in coastal and other infrastructure damage.

“While the forecast is for light to moderate rainfall over the Cape Metropole, there may be periods of heavy downpours in a short period of time. This  could lead to localised flooding, especially in informal settlements.”
