Residents of Johannesburg can expect the stormy weather to continue until at least 11pm on Monday evening.

The Weather Service has warned that the storm currently affecting large parts of the city, may result in localised flooding and even isolated incidents of large, damaging hail.

There have been reports of flooding on the N1 South at the Maraisburg off-ramp with traffic being badly affected.

JMPD spokesperson, Wayne Minnaar, says motorists are advised to exercise extreme caution as a number of roads are flooded.

“Two lanes are closed to traffic on the mike one South and the Mike One North in Newtown due to the freeway being flooded. Motorists are advised to drive with caution as officers are monitoring that situation. Klipspruit Valley Road in Orlando West, Soweto, is also flooded between Chris Hani Road and Moroko Nancefield road.”
