The South African Weather Service (SAWS) has issued a number of cold warnings as the nation is expected to be hit by an “intense cold front” beginning midday Thursday and lasting through the weekend.
Robert Mulaudzi, the City of Johannesburg’s (CoJ) Emergency Management Services’ (EMS) spokesperson said: “We have noted with concern the warning message from the SAWS that most parts of Gauteng, including the City of Johannesburg, will have significant drops in temperatures from Friday, June going into Saturday, 13 June.”
“CoJ EMS will remain on high alert to ensure we are able to respond to any emergency which might occur,” said Mulaudzi.
The significant drop in temperatures means that most residents will be forced to use heating and lighting appliances to try and warm themselves, reports roodepoortrecord.co.za.
“The main focus will be on our 189 informal settlements throughout the city since they are the most vulnerable to fire incidents in cold weather. The heating devices they use are left unattended most of the times,” concluded Mulaudzi.
Latest GFS runs reveal the anomalous-Antarctic-cold will be widespread by Friday, and will sink the mercury some 10-12C below the seasonal average across the majority of Southern Africa:
