As we mentioned in our previous post, a low pressure located over the north eastern areas of Southern Africa has been causing widespread rain and flooding to various parts of the country. The hardest hit at this point seems to be parts of the North West province, which was suggested by earlier model predictions. The small town of Wolmaransstad seems particularly hard hit, with photos and videos on Twitter showing widespread flooding in the town.

Potchefstroom also saw heavy rains with flooding, especially on the N12 highway. The flooding in the area caused delays in traffic earlier on Tuesday afternoon.

While the Gauteng area has already seen its fair share of rain from this weather system, heavy rain remains possible for Gauteng tomorrow, with the GFS forecast showing the band of moisture moving northwards, before weakening by Thursday. The North West Province however, is not out done with the possibilities for heavy rain and the same model suggests a briefer, smaller but still fairly good area of moisture will affect the province on Friday (rainfall in excess of 50mm possible in areas).
