You mean this week ---- the week starts on Sunday .... and yes I see the forecast is for 34 and 37 for Tuesday and Wednesday.
 
Tomorrow (Wed 28th) will be even hotter than today! After that things will cool down considerably. Rain is likely on Mon 4th as a cutoff-low brushes the SW-Cape coast.
And after that @CTBP expect another two mid to high thirty days..

It'll be another month and a half, at least, before we get consistent cooler temps..
 
At least the days are getting shorter so less time in this heat each day
 
How windy is it going to be tomorrow?
I want to use table mountain cable car tomorrow and it was apparently near the 35km/hr wind speed today which is when they stop the car running. What happens if you are stuck up there due to come down with the cable car and it gets too windy?

Take off your belt, swing it around the cable and hold on for dear life all the way down..

If the forecast holds, it'll be reaching 20km/h by 6pm, less than that throughout the day..

Very little wind tomorrow, that's why its going to be hot! If you don't believe me, check this forecast:

P.S. I recall the cable car bring rated up to 70km/h, 35km/h is a very low threshold...

I'm not 100% sure on that but a few sites mentioned above 35km/hr being the point when they start thinking about stopping the cable car, could be wrong though.
Any idea how do the winds on Thursday look?
