Update on Weather System 6-7 September

Please take note Kate Turner from the South African Weather Service (SAWS)  confirmed that they are still expecting a cut-off low system to develop from Thursday into Friday, predominantly affecting the Garden Route District on Friday.

Significant rainfall and intense downpours are expected on Friday, where flooding may be a risk. Thunderstorms are also possible. At this point rainfall amounts expected 20-40mm along the South Coast (Riversdale to Plett) and 50mm in the mountains. Also to note that light rain is expected from Wednesday through to Saturday morning along the South Coast which will act to saturate the ground.

Less snowfall now expected compared to the initial assessments done yesterday. Although snowfalls still very likely for both Thursday and Friday over the Langeberge, Swartberge and Nuweveld berge, the snowfall will be lighter for the Outeniqua mountains than initially expected. Very cold weather will be persisting from tomorrow through to the weekend though.

However, please note that the models have not been consistent over the last few days in terms of amounts and locations, and thus the SAWS will monitor further.
