The South African Weather Service (SAWS) has warned Capetonians to expect light rain on Wednesday.

“Fine over the extreme north-eastern parts, otherwise cloudy and cool with light rain over the south-western parts in the morning,” warned the weather service.

“The wind along the coast will be light westerly to south-westerly but strong westerly along the south coast. The expected UVB sunburn index: Low.”

SA Weather Service forecaster Ishmael Moyo warned cold weather would start rolling in from the middle of the month. Moyo said Gauteng residents could expect the temperatures to drop from next week.

“There will be a recovery in the temperatures to the central parts this week before the clear drop in temperatures sets in,” he said.

Moyo adds that normal minimum and maximum temperatures for the central and northern parts of South Africa were forecast.
