The severe winter and heavy rains will be felt throughout the country, according to the Department of Meteorological Services' Weather Forecasting Division.

The Botswana weather bureau official's warning coincides with a stern warning in South Africa about severe weather conditions coming in the next few days. 

For Botswana, rains were expected to start on Saturday evening and into Sunday morning when isolated rains were expected to occur over the Kgalagadi and Southern Districts," Radithupa Radithupa, an official at Weather Bureau said on Friday.

The Weather Bureau had warned that on Sunday the rains would intensify and spread to the Gantsi and Ngamiland districts where cloudy and cold conditions are also anticipated. The rains will intensify further and spread to other parts of the country with occasional heavy downpours in some places, the report warned.

Today is also supposed to be windy over the eastern parts of the country, with cloudy and cold conditions expected to accompany these rains throughout the period.

a westerly trough, which started yesterday.

Radithupa warned the rains might cause damage to crops and endanger livestock and ofcourse create inconvenience to the public in their daily lives.

The South African authorities predicted very cold conditions that were to start on Saturday, over the high ground of the Western Cape and the southwestern part of Northern Cape. The severe conditions were expected to have spread to the high ground regions of Eastern Cape later on Saturday.

The South African Weather Bureau also predicted very rough sea conditions with wave heights in excess of five metres between Plettenberg Bay and East London on Saturday night and yesterday.

They also predicted that conditions favourable for the development of runaway fires were expected in places such as Mpumalanga and Limpopo low-veld regions.

"The forecast shows that rains will occur during the period between June 7-10, 2009, in the southern part of the country before spreading to the rest of the country," the South African authorities said.
