The South African Weather Service is forecasting severe thunderstorms for KwaZulu-Natal, while isolated thundershowers are expected in some parts of the country on Tuesday. 

Impact-based warning

Yellow Level 2 warning: severe thunderstorms are expected over the western parts of KwaZulu-Natal, with the possibility of severe lightning, heavy downpours and damaging winds. This could result in minor disruptions in traffic flow due to its slippery nature and reduced visibility, as well as minor damage to susceptible roads, low-lying areas and bridges.

Fire danger warnings

Extremely high fire conditions are expected in places over the western and central parts of the Northern Cape as well as the northern parts of the West Coast district in the Western Cape.
