An intense cold front which will result in very cold, wet and windy conditions is expected in the province on Tuesday July 30.

Gale force north-westerly winds of between 65 and 80km/h have been forecast between Table Bay and Cape Agulhas.

Cape Town’s Disaster Risk Management Centre spokesperson, Charlotte Powell, said: “The most likely scenario would be heavy rain, leading to localised flooding.”

High seas with wave heights of 6 metres are expected between Cape Columbine and Cape Agulhas in the morning and could lead to a storm surge along the Atlantic Seaboard and False Bay.
