Port Elizabeth - The Port Elizabeth office of the South African Weather Service on Friday said that light rain fell overnight on Thursday and is expected to continue along the south coast on Friday.

"Some good news is that we can expect some temporary relief over the entire Eastern Cape next week," said Garth Sampson, the SA Weather Service's Client Liaison Officer for the Eastern Cape.

"With a constant onshore flow we can expect rain in the form of showers and thundershowers on and off between Sunday and Thursday.

"However the long term forecast is dismal and below average rainfall is forecast until March 2020."
