Stormy weather has been forecast over a large part of South Africa this week

A significant change in weather conditions is anticipated over parts of South Africa this week, with stormy, windy conditions set to hit parts of the country.

The SA Weather Service issued a press statement from their national office on Tuesday afternoon saying southern KwaZulu-Natal, the Wild Coast and adjacent inland areas of the Eastern Cape could be affected by accumulated rainfall which may result in the potential for localised flooding from Wednesday.

“This change follows a two-week rainfall recess over the central interior of South Africa, which ended on Tuesday. Apart from the interior of the Western Cape, the western parts of the Northern Cape and the central and eastern parts of Limpopo where no rainfall is forecast at this stage, citizens across other parts of the country could experience scattered (60%) to isolated (30%) showers and thundershowers. Furthermore, strong winds may affect some poorly anchored informal settlements over the central areas of the country (northern Free State, North West and eastern areas of the Northern Cape).”
