Residents in Gauteng can expect a hot week as temperatures rise above highs of 30 degrees, however, the weather service says that this is not a heatwave.
The Free State, North West and Northern Cape are, however, experiencing a heatwave.
Forecaster Lulala Phene says: “Basically for Gauteng, there’s no heatwave for now; it has not reached a threshold that allows us to say there’s a heatwave. It’s only that the temperatures are in the warm conditions.”
Mpumalanga and Limpopo are expected to see temperatures in the low to mid-30s and is also expected to receive thundershowers.
In the Western Cape, Cape Town has been forecast to expect sunny weather with a cool high of 24 degrees Celsius. Inland, temperatures are expected to range between 29 and 34 degrees.
In the Eastern Cape, temperatures along the coast will be a little higher than in Cape Town, with both Port Elizabeth and East London to peak at 27 degrees Celsius.
KwaZulu-Natal is expected to be partly cloudy, with temperatures between 28 at the coast and 34 inland.
