Icy weather to hit Gauteng and other parts of South Africa


Gauteng residents should brace themselves for a chilly week as an intense cold front is expected to hit the province from this evening.

The South African Weather Service says temperatures are expected to drop to negative digits.

The minimum temperatures on Tuesday morning for Gauteng will see Pretoria dropping to -2 degrees Celsius, Johannesburg will be -3 degrees Celsius and Vereeniging with -5 degrees Celsius. With this type of system and the cold front moving through, we can expect severe frost across the province as well. People should take care as temperatures are expected to drop.

Meanwhile, residents in low-lying areas and informal settlements should brace themselves for more flooding.

The South African Weather Service has predicted continued heavy rainfall and icy cold conditions across most parts of the Western Cape.

City of Cape Town officials had their hands full yesterday attending to numerous incidents of flooded roads.
