JOHANNESBURG - There is some good news for the firefighting teams in Cape Town.

Cloudy and cooler weather is expected tomorrow.

Firefighters have been battling to control wild fires for three days, with the original cause of the fire not yet known.

The firefighters are working to extinguish the wild fires after they started in the mountains above Muizenberg.

Isolated light showers and rain, becoming partly cloudy in the afternoon are expected.

This will bring some much needed relief for the firefighters and the people living in the areas affected by the wild fires.

The weather will start off with a fresh westerly that's veer to a moderate southerly-south-westerly.

Temperatures are expected to peak between 19 and 22.

Meanwhile, the City of Cape Town on Tuesday said around 300 firefighters were deployed at points across the mountain slopes where fires were still raging, in a bid to curb the roaring flames.

The 250 Working on Fire volunteers arrived from other provinces including the Eastern Cape and Free State to assist with the blazes affecting Tokai, Hout Bay and Chapman's Peak.
