Milder weather forecast for Bay

MILD weather is expected this weekend following the showers around Nelson Mandela Bay over the past two days.

South African Weather Service officials in Port Elizabeth recorded 17mm of rain in Port Elizabeth and 6mm in Uitenhage in what meteorologist Tennielle Jacobs described as common for this time of year heading into winter.

She said the rain was triggered by a cut-off low pressure system.

“The system has now moved through Port Elizabeth and no more heavy rain is expected.”

The mercury is set to peak at 21°C today and it will be cloudy and cool with light rain.

Tomorrow will be cloudy at first, otherwise partly cloudy and warm, at 22°C while Sunday will be warmer at 24°C. – Hendrick Mphande
