SAWS issues level 4 warning for disruptive rain in Gauteng

The South African Weather Service (SAWS) has issued a yellow level 4 warning for disruptive rain which could result to localised flooding of low lying areas and pooling of roads in the eastern parts of both the North West and Free State provinces, Gauteng, south-western parts of Limpopo, extreme western parts of Mpumalanga, the western parts of Kwazulu-Natal, as well as the eastern parts of the Eastern Cape.

According to the weather service, the wetter than normal summer rainfall season so far can mostly be ascribed to the presence of the current La Niña event.

“The current La Niña event is predicted to weaken towards the end of the summer season and ENSO neutral
conditions are expected to set in during autumn. In the most recent set of seasonal rainfall predictions (both locally and internationally), the expected rainfall over South Africa for the remainder of this summer indicates enhanced probabilities for below-normal rainfall over the summer rainfall region, except over parts of the eastern interior, where the predicted rainfall outcome is uncertain,” it said in a statement.
