Was mainly a sunny day over Kenya, just a few odd storms and showers over the southern parts, not to cold not to warm….
The cold front that was already along the KZN coast this morning has moved ion a bit further north to include the southern Lowveld where it was a lot cooler than the day before. A few light rain patches has fallen over parts of the coast (1-2mm) less towards the mountains but most areas over the KZN interior already cooled down to below 15 C. Die green patch over Limpopo is where a few very isolated storms started to develop in the late afternoon but still it was rather hot over most of the Limpopo valley with temperatures close to 40 C and a few above 40 C. The only other regions that was rather cool for this time of the year was the south-west ape coastal areas, south coast and the south-east coast, and yes there were a few spots with some light rain in the East Londen region, but not significant. The remainder of the interior was very hot and dry with temperatures 33-36 C No cloud cover means that the sun had a long day to heat the areas. The surface trough becomes better defined tomorrow, thus I cannot see and significant cooling, the only chance for cooling is and when there are a few spots with thunderstorms and then they must start before 2pm. Otherwise still very hot, and already early indications that we are moving into heat wave conditions. The areas that I can exclude is KZN and the Lowveld that may start off tomorrow morning with cloud and even a few fog patches, that will help to reduce the maximum temperature, but although cooler on the maximum side also expect higher moisture levels thus still uncomfortable temperatures more so if you are an active person. I can see nothing significant in the upper-air over the next couple of days, thus we must hope that there will be a few isolated storms, if not we are going to ,,braai’’ again..
