Don’t get too used to the uncharacteristic summer days we have been experiencing in Cape Town, cooler days are coming, and with it some much-needed rainfall.
The weather forecast for this week shows temperatures staying in the 20’s until Wednesday when it drops to the 17°C mark. Cape Town can expect more sunshine on Friday before the rain starts on Sunday. With a 60% chance of rain on Sunday and Monday, we are hoping it pours buckets well into the rest of that week.
