From Monday there will be likely less chance of rain.

South Africans can expect rain over most parts of the country throughout the weekend, said the South African Weather Service on Wednesday.

Weather forecaster Puseletso Mofokeng said there were cloudy conditions with a 50% chance of rain over the eastern parts of the country.

“Currently we are seeing cloudy conditions over the Eastern parts of the country which include Gauteng, North West, Mpumalanga, and Limpopo… we are expecting a good chance of rain as well… in KwaZulu Natal and the Free State.”

He said despite these cloudy conditions, residents could expect warm temperatures ranging above 23 degrees Celsius.

“Temperatures will be slightly warm over 23 degrees and we expect lots of rainfall in Mpumalanga at about 55 millimetres. Because it’s in a short space of time we can expect flooding in some parts, we see similar occurrences in KZN because storms are stationary.

“On Sunday we will see the rainfall fade off and therefore there is no chance of rain over much of the country from Monday.”
