CT: Another cold front expected
Capetonians are advised to soak up enough sunshine today as another cold front sets in.
CAPE TOWN - Capetonians have been advised not to put away their wellingtons and umbrellas just yet, as another cold front threatens to hit the Western Cape on Wednesday.
The province was lashed by heavy rain and strong wind at the weekend, which lead to flooding in numerous low-lying areas affecting thousands of people.
More than 8,000 informal settlement residents have been affected.
Khayelitsha has been the hardest hit, with around 7,000 flood victims while some of the other affected areas include Strand, Delft, Philippi and Lotus River.
Weather South Africa has urged Capetonians to make full use of today's little sunshine, as another cold front is expected on Wednesday.
Very little sunshine has graced the Cape's skies over the last few days, as heavy rain and cold weather settled in.
Weather SA forecaster Rian Smit says the cold front can be expected from Wednesday afternoon.
"We've got another frontal system approaching from Wednesday. This front will go through to early Thursday morning. A fair amount of rain is expected once again."
Chilly weather is expected to continue for the next two days.
Meanwhile, the City of Cape Town has provided hundreds of meals, blankets, mattresses and food hampers to residents harmed by the harsh weather conditions.
It also says it will remain on high alert, as local rivers have reached capacity.
