Cape Town is currently experiencing its first cold front for the year.

The SA Weather Service had earlier warned that the rain may cause localised flooding of roads and informal settlements.

SA Weather Service forecaster Henning Grobler tells CapeTalk that the rainfall has not been as heavy as expected this morning.

Meanwhile, the City of Cape Town has urged road users to be on alert for possible disruptions to traffic flow as well as increased crashes.

The municipality has also warned that essential services such as water and electricity may be affected by the weather.

We did expect a little bit more rainfall... There's still a whole day of rain expected on and off so it's looking fairly promising towards tomorrow.

It's typical winter weather for today with that cold front setting in last night.

It will persist right through today until this evening and maybe even a little bit of early rain expected tomorrow morning before things start clearing up. By tomorrow afternoon, everything should be gone.
