Cape Town - There is some much-needed rain heading for the drought-stricken Western Cape, however it is not as significant as initially forecast. 

According to the South African Weather Service 9 (SAWS), as much as 60% chance of rain can be expected overnight on Friday, 9 February and into Saturday morning. 

SAWS says some 10mm of rain can be expected, considerably less than initially forecast earlier in the week.

Water Crisis

As locals and visitors alike battle the effects of the drought, Cape Town's Day Zero is expected on 11 May 2018 due to a decline in agricultural usage and the City of Cape urges Capetonians to continue reducing consumption to avoid Day Zero.

All households have to reduce their municipal water consumption to 50 litres per person per day.
