NOVEMBER 3, 2015

There is more rain and thundershowers expected in the Eastern Cape on Friday through to Saturday, the SA Weather Services Port Elizabeth office said on Tuesday morning.

"Generally conditions will be fine on Sunday to end the weekend off on a good note," said Garth Sampson, SA Weather Services Client Liaison Officer for the Eastern Cape.

According to stats released by the SA Weather Services, the slight rainfall experienced in parts of the Eastern Cape late on Monday, helped to bring up the total rainfall recorded since the past Sunday.

"Winds were gusty along the coastal area during this event - with Cape St Francis receiving a maximum gust of around 110 km/h, Port Elizabeth and East London around 70 km/h," said Sampson.

Rainfall recorded on Sunday and Monday.
