The weather service has issued a warning of possible flooding, as a powerful cold front moves in parts of the Cape this week.
The weekend offered Capetonians a brief respite from the crippling drought with some much-needed rain.
Forecaster Michael Barnes says a bigger cold front will hit the province on Tuesday evening.
“It looks like a very intense system. There is going to be some heavy rainfall and flooding for the Western Cape and Northern Cape.”
Rough sea conditions are expected along the western coastline this week, as a result of the cold front.
The National Sea Rescue Institute's Craig Lambinon says: “We’re expecting sea swells in excess of at least 10m and gale force winds. This will be aggravated by the full moon Spring tide, which peaks on Friday 9 June.”
The NSRI has urged the public to follow official weather authorities’ predictions and weather warnings and to prepare for the expected conditions.
Meanwhile, farmers have welcomed rain seen over the weekend in Cape Town.
The Western Cape is the grips of the worst drought in decades, with several regions being declared disaster areas.
Agri Western Cape's Carl Opperman says the situation for farmers is dire.
“Wheat farmers need water to start germination. It is very, very dry.”
Opperman says the looming cold front is desperately needed.
