Gauteng weather: Heatwave warnings issued

12/11/2018

It's still supposed to be Spring but that memo went missing. According to the South African Weather Service, heatwave conditions are expected across large parts of Gauteng this week and will more than likely last until the weekend.

Residents can expect temperatures to range between 33 and 36 degrees. The SAWS says the heatwave is due to the dry conditions we've been plagued with recently.

Gauteng weather report: Heatwave conditions expected ALERT: SIZZLING TEMPERATURES in Gauteng all week with HOT SPELL INTENSIFYING WEDNESDAY.

Gauteng Weather (@tWeatherSA) November 11, 2018

Temperatures are expected to rise to 33 degrees in Hammanskraal and Pretoria on Monday with Johannesburg clocking in at 32 degrees and Springs at 30 degrees.

It will steadily increase over the weekend, with temperatures of 35 degrees forecasted on Friday. It will begin to cool down again on Saturday, with a 27% chance of rain on Sunday.

Early GFS model indicates very stormy and heay rainfall next Sunday.This will change over the next 6 days but could indicate a break from the heat? pic.twitter.com/DZDh8bg7WV

Pretoria will get the brunt of this heatwave, with temperatures peaking at 37 degrees on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. On Sunday, it will drop down to 30 degrees, with a 30% chance of rain.

Residents are warned to avoid prolonged exposure to the sun, especially between 10:00 and 15:00, and to drink plenty of water. To maintain an adequate level of hydration, it is advised to drink more water than you would typically consume.

Thirst is the first sign of dehydration so drink enough fluid before you start feeling thirsty. It would be best to avoid coffee and alcoholic drinks as these could cause dehydration.

Another tip is to soak your feet in buckets of cold water. Soak towels in ice water and place these on your shoulder.

And if you're a pet owner, remember that they will also be affected by the heatwave. Remember to leave enough water out for them, and a cold, damp towel on the floor will help keep their body temperatures down.

Take them to the vet if they are panting rapidly, drool excessively, vomit, if their skin is overly warm and their muscles twitch.

They must drink water and not faint onto other people's relationships asseblief tog
