Good rainfall expected for most of the country this week, says SA Weather Service
Good rainfall is expected in most parts of the country this week, despite reports of a heatwave, the SA Weather Service said on Monday.
"This heatwave advisory ceases today [Monday] for the northern parts of Gauteng and parts of Mpumalanga," forecaster Lebogang Mashile said.
"A heatwave usually lasts a minimum of three days. If those temperatures can't reach the criteria for three days it's not a heatwave."
Good rainfall was expected this week in Gauteng, Limpopo, Mpumalanga, parts of the Free State, and the eastern part of the Eastern Cape.
There was a possibility of localised flooding in some places. The temperature, mainly in Gauteng, was expected to stay in the mid to high 20s.
Cloudy conditions were expected from Wednesday.
