The Port Elizabeth weather office has predicted strong winds and more rain this week as winter sets in over the the Eastern Cape.
The full predictions are:
It will be cloudy with intermittent rain. Heavier rain showers are expected towards evening over western half of the Easter Cape (areas to the west of Port Elizabeth)
Little to no rain expected over former Transkei region.
We can expect strong North Westerly winds over the interior. This will be accompanied by scattered showers and thundershowers over the entire Eastern Cape region.
It will be cloudy and cold with rain and showers. Strong to gale force South-South Westerly winds are expected along the coast and adjacent interior, moderating later in the afternoon.
Heavier showers and thundershowers are expected in places between Port Elizabeth and East London, which can result in localized flooding.
The first major disruptive snowfalls of the year are expected overnight over the northern interior.
Due to strong Southerly winds, a spring high tide and a long southerly fetch, high seas with wave heights exceeding 6m are expected along the southern coast up to Port Alfred. These conditions can lead to destructive waves along the aforementioned coastline.
It will generally start clearing from the west, although there will still be some rain along the Wild Coast.
