On Wednesday, the weather service mentioned that while temperatures in some parts of Gauteng reduced to lower degrees, residents are likely to witness warm temperatures.

This week, some parts of the country were hit by a heatwave with a record of extreme temperatures reaching 40 degrees in some places, like Gauteng, Mpumulanga, Limpopo, the North West, and the Free State.

The mercury increased to 40 degrees in several places.

Forecaster Kumsa Masizana said:

We no longer have a heatwave and temperatures have slowly dropped down to the warm category. So our temperatures are ranging between 26 and 29 degrees across Gauteng province today. We are expecting a 30% chance of thundershowers over the central and southern parts of the Gauteng province for today.”
