Johannesburg - More rain and possible flooding is expected in parts of the country in the coming days, the SA Weather Service said on Tuesday.

A steep upper air trough was causing scattered to widespread rain and showers over the eastern half of the country, said forecaster Jaqueline Riet.

This could cause heavy rain and possible flooding in Gauteng, Limpopo, Mpumalanga, the northern parts of KwaZulu-Natal and the eastern half of North West province on Wednesday, she said.

Rainfall would decrease around Friday and Saturday, but another upper air trough was expected over the eastern half of the country by Sunday.

“This could once again cause scattered to widespread showers in the region,” said Riet. - Sapa
