Blackie Swart South Easter and water friends
Don’t know if I am alone in being a bit alarmed at this, but there seems to be a real beaut of a Black South Easter forecast for tomorrow and from what they are predicting this could be a real bomb of note. Unusual to say the least, but these type of weather patterns that trap coastal low pressure systems, and feed them back into us, is a combination of real 65km/h + wind and tons of water that can be truly devastating. Note the 10, 14 and 8mm numbers there for 3 hour periods….that’s a lot of H2O. SAWIS warning below:
Heavy rain and showers leading to localised flooding are expected at places over the Western Cape during the latter half of Friday, with this risk persisting on Saturday. Flash-flooding of river channels in some areas can also be anticipated.
Gale force easterly to south-easterly winds of 65km/h are expected in places along the coast between Cape Point and Cape Agulhas on Friday evening, extending along the Eastern Cape coast on Saturday.
Isolated severe thunderstorms over Northwest province, Gauteng, Free State, KwaZulu-Natal and Eastern Cape, especially on Friday and Saturday.
Right , so batten the hatches, check the drains are clear and go into build mode for the day.
Have had precious little time to post anything lately, so will just add some pics of the fun we had up at the Red Hill Cannon last Sunday in strong but awesome lift conditions with no injuries to man or plane and very little walking to be had. Welcome to Milly, the newest club member and friend to Mally. The way she deftly sidled up to Steve and waggled her stumpy tail in pleasure, left no question as to who was favorite on the day.
