Latest on Weekend Storm

Latest model guidance is showing what could be a very rough ride for residents of both the Western Cape and areas of the Eastern Cape this coming weekend. Rainfall estimates have shot up for Saturday around Cape Town, Boland, Winelands and areas of the Overberg. Rainfall totals have the possibility to exceed 50mm in 24 hours in numerous parts of the Western Cape with Gale Force winds expected. Strong winds will also affect Mossel Bay on Sunday where 55km/h winds are forecast by the South African Weather Service. Extremely strong winds in excess of 75km/h is forecast by the SAWS to impact Cape Point. Again I urge everyone to keep an eye on this system as warnings should be put into place soon.

Update

 The South African Weather Service has issued the following warning

Advisory – FOR SATURDAY (16/05/2009) Heavy falls of rain (50mm) are possible in places near the western mountains of the Western Cape Province. Gale force north-westerly winds (70km/h) are expected in places over the Western Cape Province, spreading to the west coast of the Eastern Cape by evening. Very rough to high seas with total wave height exceeding 6 to 7m are expected between Orange River Mouth and Cape Agulhas, spreading Plettenberg Bay by overnight.
