    Cape Town weather: Here’s how much rain will fall in the next 48 hours

    Fresh from a round of flooding and torrential downpours last week, the updated Cape Town weather forecast picks up where these adverse conditions left off. More rain is heading to the Western Cape over the next 48 hours – and SAWS are on high alert.

    Cape Town weather forecast for Thursday 23 June onwards

    The national weather service has issued a yellow Level 2 warning for the south-west, predicting sporadic incidents of localised flooding and potential traffic disruptions. As much as 40mm of rainfall is forecast for some parts of the DA-run province.

    According to the data from Ventusky, areas around the south coast are likely to bear the brunt of these deluges. The Garden Route and Little Karoo are most at-risk, and the towns of Knysna, George and Plettenberg Bay have been put on standby for a tough couple of days ahead.

    “Two cold fronts will make landfall initially on Thursday morning, bringing rainfall to south-westerly regions of the Western Cape. This will spread along the coast to Little Karoo during the afternoon. The bulk of these downpours is expected in the east of the province.”

    Flood risks, heavy downpours… and even a Level 2 warning

    Over the next two days, rain will sweep across most of the Western Cape, with only north-easterly regions excluded from the showers. We’ve picked out EIGHT key locations relevant to the Cape Town weather forecast, alongside their predicted rainfall totals:

    • Cape Town: A smattering of 8mm to 10mm can be expected over the next 48 hours.
    • Theewaterskloof: Between 10mm – 15mm is expected at the largest dam in the Mother City.
    • Hermanus and Grabouw: A maximum of 15mm is expected in Overstrand.
    • Paarl and Franschhoek: The Cape Winelands will get a small-scale dousing of 15mm – 20mm.
    • Beaufort West: The arid lands of the Karoo, and its biggest town, are on course for 18mm – 20mm.
    • George, Knysna, and Plettenberg Bay: Here’s where most of the rain will fall, with each location receiving between 30mm – 40mm.
