General Update

Spring seems to finally be in full swing as the end of September nears, thundershowers have been present over the northern parts of the country in typical summer rainfall fashion. There were strong thunderstorms present over parts of Gauteng yesterday the 28th September and heavy rains even caused several road closured in the Pretoria area. A cold snap which hit Cape Town and surrounding areas over the weekend has now passed and a week of warm temperatures in the mid-20s are forecast as a high pressure system keeps things dry for a bit.

The next focus is a strong trough forecast to developing late in the week and move eastwards. The GFS has been inconsistent in the placement of the trough- at times bringing it as far south as Cape Town where it was showing possible thundershowers for Saturday. As it stands at present though, the trough will not reach that far south and rainfall should be confined to the central interior. Though this can change and there is still some hope for something exciting this weekend in Cape Town as temperatures as forecast to reach the upper 20s.

Hurricane season in the Atlantic is soon coming to a close and we have just passed the peak activity area with very little to talk about. Definitely a boring season which has seen no landfalling systems. There is still about a month for something to happen but it’s looking like a far below average season.

And on the topic of international news, Storm Chasers Season 3 will air in the United States next month. And will likely air on South African television in a few months time. Don’t miss it on Discovery Channel when it does air.
