South Africa: Seasonal rainfall & temperature outlook (November 2019 to Februay 2020)!

The South African Weather Service (SAWS) has released the seasonal forecast for the summer 2019/20 in South Africa. The SAWS seasonal prediction system indicates enhanced probabilities of below-normal rainfall over the far eastern parts of the country, while above-normal rainfall is predicted to be more likely for the western to central parts of South Africa (November 2019 - January 2020). Towards mid-summer (December 2019 - February 2020), predictions indicate an increased likelihood of below-normal rainfall conditions. Likewise, higher than normal temperatures are expected this summer.
