Africa: Africa Weather Forecast launched their climate summary for this week from 20 to 26 of November, in which they reported a strong cold front in the west is bringing very strong NW winds into the central Cape interior, light rainfall in the west and scattered thunderstorms over the central interior on Monday and Tuesday.
It will be a dry and hot midweek with very isolated storms as a thick upper-air high-pressure cell causes widespread subsidence in the east. From Friday onwards, tropical moisture is expected to cover the central and southeastern interior, with light rainfall on Friday and moderate on Saturday and Sunday in the southeast.
MONDAY AND TUESDAY: High chance of light-to-moderate rainfall in the far southwest near Cape Town, lighter over the west and south coast today (Monday) and Tuesday.
Although partly cloudy conditions are expected in the central and eastern parts on both days, there’s a much better chance of scattered thunderstorms covering most of the central interior today, while on Tuesday, most of the thunderstorms will be confined to the northeast except for the Lowveld, leaving the central parts fine and warm. There is a high chance of strong NW winds (40-70km/h) along the west coast, over the central Northern Cape, eastern Western Cape and western Eastern Cape today (Monday), but slightly less damaging over the same region, including the south coast, on Tuesday.
WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY: Dry over the central interior midweek as the system moves east and gets replaced by a high-pressure cell in the east, leading to a low chance of very isolated showers and thundershowers in the far east on Wednesday but back to the central parts on Thursday.
On both days, one can expect mostly light rainfall in the afternoon. Moreover, there is are medium chance of heat-wave conditions that start in the northeast on Monday and Tuesday but peak across the land on Thursday and back into the east towards the later part of the week.
FRIDAY AND WEEKEND: Tropical moisture descending from the north is expected to precipitate in the western and central interior on Friday but migrate into the central parts throughout the weekend. Moderate rainfall and slightly more intense showers are expected over the southeast on Saturday. Otherwise, the far west and far northeast will remain fine to partly cloudy and hot throughout the weekend.
