Cape of Storms

The past week has seen an onset of what one can describe as winter, temperatures have dropped down to the mid teens for the most part with a succession of cold fronts impacting the Western Cape. The first of the strong cold fronts made landfall early last week, with Saturday the 8th May offering a single day of sunshine, before the next big cold front impacts us here in the Cape.

Rainfall early last week exceeded 30mm in 24 hours in quite a few places and forecasts for tomorrow Sunday the 9 May 2010 are looking as though places could receive in excess of 20mm, with next week Thursday also looking as though it may bring rainfall totals in excess of 30mm. Winds have also been strong at times over the past week with gale force north westerly winds present. Tomorrow Sunday the 9th may see winds exceeding 60km/h at times in places with a tight pressure gradient causing very strong winds off-shore.

While freezing levels have remained a bit high for snow, it is only the beginning of May and if the past week and upcoming week is anything to go by, then the model predictions for an above average rainfall winter season look to be very possible.
