The South African Weather Service (SAWS) has warned Gauteng residents to keep their jackets close on Wednesday as it expects cool weather with isolated showers and thundershowers.

A spell of overcast, cold and windy weather is expected to persist over much of Eastern Cape, KwaZulu-Natal and Mpumalanga in the period extending from Monday through to Wednesday, warned the weather service.

“Rainfall during this period is expected to be mostly of a patchy nature, but generally less intense than the rainfall anticipated today and tomorrow over Eastern Cape. The residents of KwaZulu-Natal as well as Mpumalanga should therefore prepare for a three-day episode of rainfall, which may be heavy at places.”
