The farmers in the Hanover district are really suffering. On the farm where I am at the moment, they are distributing 4 tons of feed per day, 6 days a week to keep their flocks going. The sheep are in poor condition, lambs are routinely abandoned by the ewes. Can't go on much longer and then the herds may have to be deliberately culled. The farm dams are all bone dry. The water table is dropping as well with shallower borehole yields drastically reduced.

Not quite summer beach weather...

Ironically the longer this weather stays like this the more delayed Summer rains up north are.

We prob need a month of SE to blow, which is part of the bigger circulation pattern to bring in the summer rains.

Black South Easter conditions over the SW-Cape (cutoff-low). No [significant] rain expected for Cape Town itself, but heavy falls in the Overberg and along the Garden Route today (Tues 12th).

Edited to clarify.

Hmmm, it was drizzling a few minutes ago on the N1 between Kraaifontein and Bellville.

Hearing rumours about severe flooding in George and Caledon, but it could be #fakenews.
Facebook has comments from around the country. Flooding in Robertson this morning.

Damn, wind is pumping here by me.
Hopefully it blows my neighbour's cats off my roof and back into the neighbour's yard.
