Western Cape residents can brace themselves for cold, wet and windy weather conditions from tomorrow.

The South African Weather Service has issued a warning of a cold front that could lead to localised flooding.

Residents are also warned of a significant drop in temperatures on Friday and Saturday.

Spokesperson for department of Local Government, James-Brent Styan, says disaster management centres are on stand-by.

“The cold fronts are expected to make landfall on Thursday with heavy rain predicted from Thursday afternoon, spreading over the entire province by the evening. Rainfall accumulation of up to 50mm can be expected over the south western parts of the province which may lead to localised flooding from Thursday. The weather is expected to clear up by Sunday. We urge members of the public to take necessary precautions ahead of the bad weather predicted”.
