According to SAWS, ‘strong and gusty southerly to south-easterly winds (50 to 70kph) are expected between Cape Columbine and Cape Agulhas from Monday late morning into Tuesday’.

In addition, SAWS added that the areas between Cape Columbine and Cape Agulhas will also be experiencing wave heights of 3.5 to 4.5 metres which will cause quick successive steep waves to develop during this time.

As a result, oceangoers may experience difficulty in navigating at sea, while small vessels and personal watercraft such as kayaks will be at risk of taking on water and capsizing in a locality. It is also likely that small harbours and ports may experience localised disruptions for a short period.

The weather warning is valid from 10am on Monday, 26 February, until midnight on Tuesday, 27 February.
