Storm Report SA

Storm Report SA

From Mike Berridge

The mid latitude cyclone "LS" is about to pass quite close to the Cape south coast. The entire system contains much moisture and will provide a very cold and rainy day for nearly all of the Cape. A purple arrow indicates the movement of the cold front and it's rain during the day. Overnight, snow will begin on the central Cape mountains, spreading towards Lesotho, continuing in patches tomorrow (Saturday) backed up by front "FS3" which is expected to also provide rain for the Port Elizabeth areas. The diagram shows rain spreading as far as Swakopmund, and close to Windhoek in Namibia. Initial rain on the cold side of the front will be moderate to heavy (bright pink), and thunder activity is indicated for the far south-west Cape, especially out at sea. Various winds strengths are shown, and will not be as strong as yesterday.
Tomorrow morning (Saturday) the cold front will reach the central regions of Limpopo, Botswana, and Namibia, having passed through the Free State and Gauteng. In these areas, however, the air will start drying out, so cloud patches will begin evaporating and no showers can be expected. The Saturday sunrise temperatures in the central interior will be freezing in many places, including parts of the southern half of Namibia.
Today's very warm temperatures for the east coast will begin to drop during the afternoon as the adiabatic winds become disarrayed.
