Monster swells are building up in the South Atlantic.

Massive swells, gale-force winds and heavy falls of rain are in store for large parts of the Western Cape throughout most of this week, weather forecasters warn.

The first in a series of cold fronts is likely to make landfall later on Monday, with a full week of wild weather ahead.

The SA Weather Service issued a special warning on Sunday that gale-force northwesterly winds, reaching 35 knots, or 65km/h, accompanied by "very rough seas" would stretch from Table Bay to Cape Agulhas, reaching Plettenberg Bay.
