Wild Weather Across South Africa

Wild Weather Across South Africa

It’s been a week of interesting weather developments with a cut off low causing chaos across much of the country. The COL developed over the western parts of the country late last week initially bringing with it Black South-Easter conditions to the Western Cape. While rainfall in the Cape Town area was very limited, strong winds swept across the SW Cape with reports of wind gusts exceeding 70km/h. By Saturday morning heavy rains had begun to fall in parts of the Eastern Cape, while later into the evening and overnight Cape Town saw some light thunderstorm activity. Further north, in KZN the band of moisture had begun to drop massive amounts of rain on parts of the province. The official rainfall recording for Mtunzini (KZN) was a staggering 165mm in a 24 hour period.

Since Monday the focus has definitely shifted more to the strong thunderstorms which were being experienced over the Free State and surrounding provinces. There were some impressive images coming out of Bloemfontein of wall cloud formations.

At the higher elevations, snow was the topic of conversation as impressive snowfalls occurred over the central Drakensberg.

Things aren’t over quite yet either, with the potential for more developments over the next few days as a trough comes in to play. So keep an eye on your local weather forecasts and on our Facebook page.
