Cape Town - The SA Weather Service has warned that the heavy rain that fell in the Western Cape over the weekend was a precursor for more cold and wet weather in the week.

Chilly, rainy weather was forecast for the region on Monday, reported Die Burger. This cold front will gradually spread across the country over the week, bringing with it cold and wet weather.

Rain was expected across the Western Cape on Monday, but the current weather system was expected to clear up during the course of the day.

A second cold front was expected to arrive in the Western Cape on Thursday, bringing heavy rains for Cape Town, Grabouw, Hermanus, Paarl, Malmesbury, Langebaan and Clanwilliam.

The City of Cape Town was keeping a close eye on nine informal settlements that were being seen as high risk flood risks.

These areas included Nkanini, Mfuleni, Barcelona, Site C and Browns Farm.

Thick fog wreaked havoc with flights in and out of Cape Town last week, reported the Weekend Argus.

A spokesperson for the Airports Company South Africa (Acsa) confirmed that heavy fog resulted in poor visibility at Cape Town International Airport, causing a delay in some flights.
