SAWS: Cape Town can expect a wet, windy Thursday thanks to cold front

We may be heading into spring, but it seems that winter just can’t let go of Cape Town just yet.

The South African Weather Service on Wednesday issued a set of weather watches for a cold front set to make landfall in the Western Cape on Thursday morning.

Watches include gale force winds along the coast between Cape Point and Cape Agulhas, and “heavy rainfall” for a band extending from the Cape Peninsula north to the Northern Cape border.

“Scattered to widespread rainfall expected in the west where it will be cold,” the service added in a tweet. “It will be windy across most of RSA.”

South Africans in the interior can experience high fire danger conditions ahead of the front too.

The cold front doesn’t seem as threatening as systems we’ve seen earlier this year in the region, but it worth keeping in mind when heading to work tomorrow morning.
