The SA Weather Service has advised the Disaster Risk Mangement Centre of another cold front approaching moving over the south-western Cape on Tuesday afternoon.
Strong to gale force winds are expected throughout Tuesday along the coast. SW-W’ly swells also increasing to 5.0-5.5m along the same stretch of coastline. Vessels will have difficulty in navigating, risk of capsizing. Some disruption to small harbors may occur.
Beachfront activities such as swimming and angling are not advised.
While the rainfall was not expected to be heavy, heavier downpours would fall over the open ocean adjacent to the south-western Cape coast.
The weather bureau said: “Heavier rainfall can be expected over mountainous terrain, which will inevitably feed into river and dam systems, which is good news for farmers and the general public alike.”
