Africa: The Africa Weather Forecast has predicted extreme weather conditions for South Africa for the coming week from February 12th to February 18th .
Sporadic showers with light rainfall are forecasted over the eastern Highveld most of the week as intense heat persists over the Cape Province. Otherwise, reports also forecast that the weather will be fine and warm to hot.
The Weather in Africa on Monday and Tuesday will be partly cloudy in the east, and there is also a medium chance of light rainfall from isolated thunderstorms over eastern Highveld today and Tuesday. Otherwise, both days will be fine and hot elsewhere. High chance of intense heat and runaway veld fires over the Cape interior on both days.
Additionally, the weather on Wednesday and Thursday will be light, with light rainfall from isolated showers and thundershowers over the eastern Highveld on both days, with persistently hot temperatures in the west on Wednesday but over the central interior on Thursday. Otherwise, most coastal regions will be partly cloudy and cool, with a medium chance of light rainfall over the Western Cape’s coastline on Wednesday, reaching more of the coast and adjacent interior on Thursday.
The weather on Friday and the weekend will shift east. The system will migrate thunderstorms from the eastern Highveld into the far east and north-eastern parts of the country while keeping the rainfall intensities low.
This results in partly cloudy days with a high chance of afternoon showers and thundershowers over Mpumalanga, KwaZulu-Natal and southern Limpopo on Friday and Saturday (light rainfall along the south coast on Friday) but widespread across the east to include Gauteng, eastern Free State and eastern North West on Sunday.
Moreover, there is a 101% chance of rainfall today on Monday, and The Global Ensemble Forecast System (GEFS) attempts to quantify the amount of uncertainty in a forecast by varying the known inputs to multiple forecasts, thereby generating a range of possible outcomes.
