The South African Weather Service (Saws) has warned of disruptive rain that may lead to flooding in KwaZulu-Natal on Tuesday.
The weather service said a surface high is expected to extend its ridge along the KZN coast on Tuesday and it is accompanied by a weak upper air trough. As a result, widespread (80%) showers and thundershowers are expected over most parts of KZN on Tuesday.
Saws said a significant amount of rainfall has already fallen over KZN, with some stations having received about 30-40mm with 24 hours. Significant amounts of rain are still expected to continue over KZN on Tuesday.
The weather service warned that the heavy rains are expected to lead to localised flooding and difficult driving.
People have been advised to avoid crossing rivers and swollen and to protect or relocate animals to a safe place on higher ground.
