Spring is likely to announce its arrival with rain in several parts of the country on Tuesday.

The SA Weather Service on Monday said in some parts of the country rainfall would be accompanied by strong winds.

Gauteng would see a 30% chance of showers and thundershowers from Tuesday. Strong north-easterly winds reaching speeds of 40km/h would also sweep through the province, the weather bureau said.

Forecaster Lulamile Pheme said the tidal flow would also affect parts of the North West and Free State.

“A 60% chance of rain will be seen in the North West, Free State, parts of Limpopo and Mpumalanga,” Pheme said.
