Western Cape to get short break from cold

2012-07-11 08:15

Cape Town - Residents of the Western Cape can expect a day or two of relief from the cold, wet weather that has gripped the province over the past few days.

Die Burger reported that more cold weather was expected over the weekend.

The coldest place over the past weekend was Ceres, where 8°C was measured on Saturday.

From Thursday night and Friday, very cold and wet conditions will hit, particularly in the eastern parts of the province.

Meanwhile, the newspaper also reported that participants in this year’s Berg River Canoe Marathon would have to battle a very full and active river.

The annual canoe marathon begins in Paarl on Wednesday and an organiser said the river was very full due to the heavy rains of the past week.

This meant that participants should exercise caution and might have to tackle the river differently from previous years, said organiser André Collins.

    The only person I know who can get their job wrong on a daily basis, and still keep it is the weatherman. Yesterday, headlines were "No end in sight" for cold...and today its "short break in cold." I find its better to wake up and look outside, than trust the weather report.

      Windguru has done me no wrong up until now :) One of few weather services I actually believe.

    I've seen 7°C in Cape Town this last week. And the Karoo must have been colder. Weatherman

    I also think, the only way is to get up and go outside to see the weather. If you rely on weather people yhooo, I'm telling. Those people are not reliable.
