Cold front sweeps through SA
A cold front is expected to hit parts of the country before the spring season sets in.
JOHANNESBURG/CAPE TOWN - A cold front is expected to hit parts of the country before the spring season sets in.
Low temperatures and windy conditions are expected in most of the country from tonight as a cold snap in Cape Town moves north.
Forecaster Elizabeth Webster says temperatures will begin dropping tonight in Gauteng
"It's going to be nice and warm in Gauteng this morning, but later on in the day we are expecting the cold front to move through, that's where we will see temperatures drop. From Friday morning the temperatures are going to be quite cold."
Meanwhile, Provincial and municipal officials in Cape Town are already on high alert as the cold front hit the province last night.
The intense cold front brought with it heavy rain and strong winds.
Local government MEC Anton Bredell says various authorities are prepared for any eventuality.
"We have put everybody on standby and on high alert. We've got our communications centre set up and we've got our disaster management teams from different sectors helping one another."
