The most recent weather forecast is predicting rainfall in various parts of South Africa over the next week, including possible rains in Cape Town.

 

We woke up to a grey sky in Johannesburg this morning, there was also a chill in the air, both a sign of rain. To confirm it, we looked up the weather forecast and were happily surprised to see that Johannesburg is expecting a fair bit of rain over the next week.

Curiosity and sheer hope then lead us to check if the Western Cape was in for the same treat. They are predicted to receive rain just not quite as soon as Johannesburg but there are rainfall predictions which are as much as we can hope for.

According to predictions, Gauteng will have rain over the next six days. Starting today with scattered showers leading up to full rain from Saturday until Tuesday next week. This news is a relief as it was said that the region wouldn’t experience summer rains until January next year. The public was urged to become stricter with water usage over the summer period, these should still be applied as we cannot know for sure how much rain we will receive.

Meanwhile, the Western Cape is set to receive rainfall from next week Wednesday. Conditions will be cloudy and chilled from Monday but let’s hope that the rain arrives even sooner than that.

Weather SA have shared these predictions of rainfall in South Africa today.

MPUMALANGA:
Cool with partly cloudy conditions in the west, otherwise cloudy
and windy in the east with morning fog and drizzle patches, recurring
in the evening. It will be cold in the east.
Isolated thundershowers are expected in the south-west in the evening

LIMPOPO:
Cool with partly cloudy conditions in the west, otherwise cloudy
and windy in the east with morning fog and drizzle patches, recurring
in the evening. It will be cold in the east.

NORTH-WEST PROVINCE:
Partly cloudy and warm with afternoon showers and thundershowers,
except in the north-east.

FREE STATE:
Cool in the north-east, otherwise partly cloudy and warm with afternoon
showers and thundershowers, except in the extreme south.

Let’s keep our neighbouring provinces in our minds and do little rain-dances for them in the hopes that these weather predictions benefit them as well.
