Winter starts in June. It's still late-autumn weather.
As per the meteorological calender, agreed, Winter is from 1 June to 31 August. I go on what it feels like temperature-wise. :laugh:

And if we consider the Winter solstice to be 23 June, then it's roughly 45 days before and 45 days after.

Although I saw my weather app predicting storms for tomorrow, I was still very surprised to see the line of storms at the South of GP when looking at this evenings weather

Very unfortunate for the Eastern Cape to see most of the rain is falling off shore :(

I got caught out. My braai that I didn’t clean up from the weekend is flooded. My dog poop scoop was also left lying around and the plastic is now full of water and soggy turds.

Ah, so that was lightning I caught out of the corner of my eye at about a quarter to midnight, then?
I had dismissed it as sleepy hallucinations.

We had 10mm rain during the night. Very chilly this morning but everything smells fresh.

We ran at 0400 this morning, got home around 0500 soaked and cold. This late rain is a good indication that we will have bitterly cold winter. Start stocking up on LP Gas. Its an issue every year!
