It is going to be scorching hot today, but from tomorrow, temperatures are going to take a bit of a dip.
The cooler weather will bring much-needed rain to the capital, which has been caught in intense heat for the past few days and temperatures climbing up to a soaring 35°C. According to forecasters, while it was going to be very hot today, residents must relax because it is not really a heatwave; it is just a mere “frontal system”, meaning the weather can change at any time.
SA Weather Service forecaster Puseletso Mofokeng cautioned Pretoria residents to seek shade.
Hot conditions were expected today; however tomorrow the weather would change dramatically, and severe thunderstorms were likely. He said temperatures were expected to drop sharply, with a 60% chance of showers and thunderstorms at night. A huge chance of severe thunderstorms should be expected for tomorrow and as well as Friday. .
