UPDATE: Cold front expected to move over Eastern Cape

Port Elizabeth - A cold front is expected to sweep over the Western Cape and the Eastern Cape from Wednesday the Port Elizabeth office of the SA Weather Service said. 

 "Ahead of it, strong bergwinds are expected over the interior, reaching gale force in places," said Garth Sampson, Client Liaison Officer Eastern Cape South African Weather Service.

"This is why there are warnings issued for High Fire Danger conditions.

"The front is expected to pass over the Eastern Cape later today [Wednesday]. 

"This will lead to light snowfall over the Drakensberg [Lesotho-EC border] overnight."

Sampson said that light showers are likely south of Darlington Dam - mainly along the coast from this evening. 

"As a high pressure system ridged in tomorrow, the likelihood of showers will increase near the coast," he added. 

"Light snow may also occur in places over the Sneeuberg and Winterberg tomorrow [Thursday].

"The rainfall between Cape St Francis and East London continues on Friday."
