    Lanseria is reporting 34, Pretoria North 35, East-Rand 31 :confused: Looking around I do see a few towering cumulus clouds, but they're not reaching too high... I suspect even with this heat conditions just aren't unstable enough higher up :( The probability for storms does increase a little...

    Unfortunately for most of us I don't think the anticipated rain is coming :crying: Most of it is falling to the north over Limpopo and to the east over Mpumalanga, with nothing immediately promising on the Irene or Ottosdal radars - if we're lucky hopefully some CB's will develop and blow over...

    It has its perks ;) I use the data very often for flight planning purposes and go/no-go decisions, especially for bush and old town strips where there are no instrument facilities, en-route planning etc etc :D It's an invaluable tool, which I don't mind sharing for educational purposes :)...
