Cold mornings here to stay

"Our mornings will remain very cold, considering the fact that we are now entering the winter season."

Hundreds of Nomzamo Informal Settlement residents were left out in the cold after authorities evicted them from the area, saying they are illegally occupying privately owned land. The land belongs to Sanral and is designated for the rerouting of the N2. Picture: Gallo Images / The Times / Thomas Holder.

Your mornings are expected to remain cold for the better part of this week, the South African Weather Services said on Tuesday.

Speaking to The Citizen, forecaster Mkhushulwa Msimanga said the recent cold front which resulted in significant drops in temperatures has also made it difficult for the minimum temperatures to improve.

“While it is expected to warm up during the day, our mornings will remain very cold, considering the fact that we are now entering the winter season,” said Msimanga.

Minimum temperatures in Vereeniging are expected to range between 4 and 5 degrees celsius, and between 5 and 7 degrees celsius in Johannesburg.

Residents in Pretoria can expect minimums there to range between 8 and 11 degrees celsius.

Meanwhile maximum temperatures are expected to also remain in the cool to warm categories.
