Indeed looks like it is moving to PTA CBD soon. Can hear the rumble in the east. The red outline would be the predicted location of the cell. The aqua coloured outlined area is the current position.

I went out cycling at 06:00 this morning, From Sasolburg out on the R59 in the direction of Parys. After I finished my 55km ride, the temperature on my cycling computer measured almost 31°C! That's at 08:30 in the morning.

2015/2016 summer flash backs?
Ooh no don't say that. I think we're already doing better though. I recall not a drop of rain until at least this time of year, if not November. And 35 degree days on the trot.

Vaal Dam is currently just over 30%, around 25 Aug 2016 it was 33.8%:

One can see last weeks rain caused some inflow, but not enough to stop it dropping.
