Cape Town - Following a week of sunshine and warm weather, strong winds and rainfall are expected in some parts of the province today and over the weekend – although the Currie Cup final at Newlands is not expected to be affected.
The SA Weather Service has issued weather advisories for the Western Cape and other parts of the country where strong winds and rough seas are expected.
Senior forecaster at the service, Puseletso Mofokeng, said: “Significant rainfall can be expected over the eastern parts of the Western Cape.
“This is due to a cut-off upper-air low pressure system developing off the west coast of South Africa. The system will be accompanied by strong winds towards the central parts of the country on Thursday, with rough to very rough seas along the south-west and south coasts.”
Mofokeng saidthe system was expected to move to the southern and eastern parts of the country from Saturday and said that rainfall and thundershowers were forecast for the Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal.
“It will remain showery over the eastern parts of the country on Sunday with more rain expected along the KwaZulu-Natal coast.”
No rain was expected over Newlands, but the game was expected to be played under partly cloudy conditions.
