This comes after the country experienced a record-breaking heatwave earlier in November.

Temperatures are expected to hit low to mid 30s until Tuesday.

“Weather extremes will continue to occur from time to time during the summer season as much as drier conditions are expected. Caution is advised at this point, as the El Niño effect might still manifest its influence in the next few months and change the outlook of the rainfall forecast for mid- and latesummer,” said SA Weather Service.

The heatwave is expected to be in Gauteng from 2 December all the way to the 5th of December.

Minimum and maximum temperatures are expected to be mostly above-normal countrywide for the forecast period.

The SA weather service will continue to monitor the weather and climate conditions and provide updates on any future
assessments that may provide more clarity on the current expectations for the coming season.

“Furthermore, the public are urged and encouraged to regularly follow weather forecasts on television and
radio.”

Last weekend, Eskom ‘blamed’ heatwave for higher load shedding stages.
