Weather service issues warning for probability of severe weather

The South African Weather Service (SAWS) has said there is a likelihood of severe weather on Saturday, 28 November, “especially over the central and south-eastern interior”.

SAWS said large hail, heavy rainfall leading to flooding, and strong to damaging winds was possible.

On Friday, SAWS had issued a level 4 yellow thunderstorm warning, set to impact parts of the country this weekend.

SAWS confirmed that central and southern Free State, extreme northeastern Northern Cape, and eastern interior of Eastern Cape were expected to bear the brunt of the thunderstorms on Saturday.

The heavy rains could lead to localized flooding of roads, bridges and low-lying areas.

The expected floods could result in difficult driving conditions on dirt roads and minor motor vehicle accidents due to slippery roads and reduced visibility.

Thunderstorms are also expected in Gauteng, with the heavy rains starting on late Friday afternoon in the southern region, while the entire province is expected to experience the same weather in the evening on Saturday and early Sunday morning.

Here is some safety precautions:

  • Do not seek shelter under trees
  • Look out for and do not cross flooded low lying bridges.
  • Try to remain indoors and try to look out for potential tree toppling
  • The centre also advised locals to follow official and trusted emergency social media accounts to receive reliable information.
