SAWDIS: The SAWS web-site reflect that there are No warnings nor advisories in effect for the Northern Cape but two lines later the following warnings are issued: Detail: Valid for 27/12/2011: 1. Heavy falls of rain are possible in places in the east. The question now arise whether a warning has been issued for the Northern Cape???


The SA Weather Service severe weather warnings are once again confusing and misleading this afternoon. This is now the umpteenth time that the SAWS weather warnings are not correct.
