Cape Town has been battered by a fierce cold front this week, leading to localised flooding and low temperatures with some rainfall estimations expected to exceed 70mm. The South African Weather Service's prediction of an intense cold front making landfall on Wednesday 10 June promised gale force winds, torrential downpours and snow in the surrounding mountains. This turbulent trio of conditions, while welcomed by some as the first proper storm of the Western Cape’s winter season, has left a trial of deluged induced damage.
