Heavy rainfall, very cold conditions, rough seas, snow, and strong to gale-force winds are expected over parts of the Cape provinces this weekend as a strong cold front makes landfall on Friday evening.

Spokesperson for the South African Weather Service (SAWS) Garth Sampson says although the Western Cape will experience the brunt of these conditions, the central and eastern parts of the country will also experience cold to very cold conditions from Saturday evening into Sunday.

He says widespread rainfall can be expected over the western and southern parts of the Northern Cape, most parts of the Western Cape, and parts of the Eastern Cape on Saturday.
