The Witness - - NEWS - — Wit­ness Re­porter.

IF you are think­ing we have got away with a mild win­ter so far, brace your­self — colder weather is on the cards for KZN.

South African Weather Ser­vices is fore­cast­ing that a cold front will hit the province on Mon­day.

“Iso­lated morn­ing show­ers will be pos­si­ble along the coastal ar­eas of KwaZulu­Na­tal on this day, while very cold morn­ings with frosty con­di­tions are ex­pected across most of the in­te­rior,” said Ezekiel Se­bego, weather fore­caster.

Se­bego said Eastern Cape and Western Cape res­i­dents should brace them­selves for a big freeze this week­end, which should bring much­needed rain to drought­stricken ar­eas.

“A cold front is ex­pected to make land­fall over the Western Cape on Satur­day overnight into the early hours of Sun­day morn­ing. Ahead of the front, rain and show­ers are pos­si­ble over the south­west­ern parts of the Western Cape from Satur­day af­ter­noon, spread­ing to the re­main­der of the Western Cape and the western and south­ern parts of the North­ern Cape on Sun­day.

“Rain and show­ers will be ex­pected over the Eastern Cape by Sun­day af­ter­noon. Sig­nif­i­cant rain­fall is ex­pected over the south­west­ern parts of the Western Cape dur­ing Sun­day morn­ing which may re­sult in lo­calised flood­ing in places in the Cape Metropole, Over­berg and Cape Wineland Districts,” he said.
