Heavy downpours are expected in places during the same period, which might result in localised flooding, the weather service said. High seas with waves in excess of 6 metres are expected between Columbine and Plettenberg Bay.

Snowfall is expected on the mountains of the Western Cape from Monday afternoon, spreading to the Eastern Cape.
