JOHANNESBURG - South Africans have been urged to keep warm as a cold front hits the country.

The South African Weather Service said temperatures were expected to drop to single digits this weekend, especially in the Western Cape.

Forecaster Lulama Pheme said there was a 60% chance of rain in Gauteng.

“The indications that we have is that this cold front is moving northwards, which means by later today [Saturday] we expect it to be in the northern parts of Gauteng province and move over the border of Limpopo province, and affecting the entire southern parts with more cold conditions,” Pheme said.
