November Update – Winter back in Cape Town?

After a few weeks of warm and enjoyable weather Cape Town is set to experience cold wintery conditions yet again, a series of cold fronts will bring rain to the Western Cape for the next 9 days, which is a long period even if it were winter- the odd part being that it’s now November. The weather conditions are likely to play havoc with the MTN 40 over cricket games which were set to be played at Newlands. The conditions are unseasonable but not unheard of, temperatures should hover around the 20`C mark for most of the Cape Town area for the next week. After day 10 it seems the conditions will improve as another ridge will move into place and bring warmer weather. The SAWS has put out some warnings for rough seas as well as strong winds over the next few days.

Up country summer has definitely arrived with a couple of severe thunderstorm warnings being issued over the past week or so, radar managed to capture a hook echo near Polokwane a few days ago, a sign of a severe thunderstorm (supercell). Elsewhere, one can hope the cold fronts affecting Cape Town at present can move onwards to the George and Mossell Bay areas where there is talk of drought.

Another reminder that I will be heading to Johannesburg on the 18th of November for 2 weeks to hopefully do some storm chasing. Will be hoping to get some good photography and videos for the site. It will be my first dedicated chasing holiday, looking forward to it.

Below is a video of the Cape Town storm of 2 weeks ago:
