“The rainfall is not without its challenges. As at 11.45am this morning, the N2 has been closed between Caledon and Riviersonderend due to flooding,” said Bredell on Monday.
“There have been several other incidents of localised flooding in some areas across the province. This is expected to continue another day or two.”
In addition, there is a possibility of hail in some parts of the province, including the Karoo.
The average water level for all dams in the Western Cape currently stands at 39.8% -considerably higher than the 2018 average of just 19.5% – although Bredell noted that this figure would exclude the heavy rainfall experienced over the past few days.
Dams supplying the City of Cape Town currently stand at an average of 51.6%, also well up from the 2018 figure of 22.7%.
