After two days of severe downpours, the Cape Town Weather Office says another cold front could be headed for city.
The second cold front is expected to hit the city on Monday morning.
Cape Town Weather Service’s Stella Nake says, “We are only expecting a few light showers in the southern part of the peninsula. Nothing major is expected as compared to Thursday and Friday“.
She added that “the rain predicted is just for tomorrow as the rest of the week should be clear“.
According to reports city municipal workers and disaster management members had to clear away the rock falls and mudslides left behind from the cold front that hit the city on Friday.
Wilfred Solomons of Disaster Management says, “The city's Disaster and Risk Management team and local authorities have been placed on full alert around the clock, after receiving warnings of severe weather for the rest of the long weekend”.
