The Western Cape has seen its fair share of ups and downs in its weather temperatures over the past two weeks, but this weekend is forecast to be a real scorcher.
Cape Town recently experienced a week of sizzling heat during which temperatures were the highest they had been in a while. From there, temperatures began dropping again, giving Capetonians a breather from the hot weather.
The heat is set to start picking back up on Friday November 8, with forecasts showing a high of 31°C, before moving into a weekend of high 20s and possibly 30s. Some predict Sunday’s temperatures may even push past the 30°C mark.
The warm weather will begin to subside from next week Tuesday, when temperatures will dip to a 24°C high, as stated by SA Weather.
As temperatures begin to spike, so do worries regarding the Western Cape’s dam levels. As of today levels are at 73.9% and locals are crossing their fingers that the warm weather ahead won’t put too much strain on water storage.
