Partly cloudy conditions expected across SA on Saturday

Partly cloudy conditions are expected in most parts of the country for Saturday, according to the South African Weather Service (SAWS).

South Africa experienced some of the heavy downpours during the week, after a cold front had passed over the southern parts of the country.

SAWS forecaster Tokelo Chiloane said temperatures in Gauteng were expected to rise to the mid-20s this weekend.

She said the warm conditions would last until Sunday followed by a significant cooling into Monday.

“Light winds are forecast for the weekend making the conditions perfect to spend [time] outside,” Chiloane said.
