The Western Cape Weather Office says there is no rain on the cards for the province for the week ahead.

This past week, the province experienced a short-lived yet powerful cold front that brought with it good rainfall of up to 72 millimetres in some parts.

Heavy downpour caused havoc with extensive flooding in some areas. Trees were uprooted and power lines damaged. Forecaster, Mmathapelo Makgabutlane says temperatures are expected to warm up.

“For the rest of the week, we’re not expecting any rain. We’re expecting temperatures to start warming up. Tomorrow is still a bit on the cool side, however from Tuesday, Wednesday and even into Thursday, we do expect those temperatures to start warming up into the mid to higher twenties… So quite a nice, warm week expected. At this stage, the earliest indication of rain only towards the end of the week, possibly into Saturday evening. But that is still quite far ahead.”
