JOHANNESBURG – Cape Town woke up hopeful with a little relief on Saturday morning following overnight rain in the drought-hit city.

Around 8mm of rain was recorded in the city, Gauteng Weather reported.

“8mm of overnight rain recorded at our affiliate weather station in Cape Town,” the service said in a tweet.

Whether this will have any impact on DayZero remains to be seen.

Earlier on Friday meteorologists had predicted a cold front with most of the rain expected around midnight.

Models were indicating between 5 and 10mm of rain in the city with up to 20mm in the mountainous catchment regions.

Capetonians took to Twitter with excitement when the drought stricken city saw the rain.
