The wind was so wild in the Eastern Cape yesterday!
In Queenstown, the wind blew over a shipping container which killed a man and injured 3 more

Cape Town is bracing for a weekend of heavy rain, floods and gale force winds with a storm set to sweep through the Cape.

The South African Weather Office said flooding was expected in the southern parts of the West Coast District, Cape Metro and western parts of the Capelands and Overberg District on Thursday night.

There is a small chance of light snow on Table Mountain this weekend, according to Snow Report.

Snow has also been forecast for the western high ground of the Western Cape and the southern high ground of the Northern Cape tomorrow afternoon through to Saturday.

City disaster management spokesman Wilfred Solomons-Johannes said the cold front would move through slowly, with heavy rain expected until at least Sunday.

“We are expecting localised flooding and flash flooding, so we can anticipate roads being flooded in the informal settlements,” he said.

Teams were on standby to tackle the problem areas as soon as the storm began.

Now there's a neat new tool I found on the website I use. Below is the severity of a front/storm in different colours.

With a neat explanation of the colours and their meanings:

And just in case you wanted to know what the wind is doing: each 'barb' means 10 knots (1 knot = 1.8kph for a rough idea)
