On the 27 August 2009 there were numerous thunderstorms (Which were not forecast to occur) popping up in the Gauteng area, CAPE values were around 1000 J/kg which would allow for convective storms to form. While surface dew points remained lower than that usually expected with thunderstorms- moist air moving in from the west at mid-levels of the atmosphere allowed for enough instability to create storms. According to reports the thunderstorms were accompanied by frequent lighting as well as strong winds.
