HUGE wind, some hail and a very strong downpour for 5 minutes in Pretoria last night. Haven't seen winds and rain like that in a long time. But as quickly as it came, so quickly it left. Something like 5mm fell.

PTA East, we heard it and saw it in the distance, that was it.

so i noticed accuweather reckons tuesday will be nice and miserable and rainy. can any of our local professionals confirm this?
Yes. A cold front brushed the SW-Cape coast this evening (Sun 31st), and is likely to push moisture into the interior by Tues 2nd. See the 5 day outlook:

My sophisticated eye-ball method tells me it is about to break loose over Pretoria soon. Heading home before the traffic chaos that is bound to follow
