South Africa is currently in the grip of an intense heatwave and there seems to be no relief on the way.

The South African Weather Service said, “heatwave conditions with persistently high temperatures exceeding average maxima are expected until Friday”.

Temperatures reached 43 degrees Celsius in South Africa this week with temperatures expected to rise in Zimbabwe, Mozambique, and Malawi as well.

The heatwave is expected to spread further to Namibia, Botswana, Madagascar, and Tanzania over the weekend.

News24 reports that the Botswana Department of Meteorological Services, in a statement, said conditions would be “very hot to extremely hot temperatures of 36 to 41 degrees Celsius are expected over the entire country. Therefore, the public is advised to take necessary precautions”.

Similar statements were released in Namibia, Mozambique and Madagascar.

Severe weather conditions have also reached other countries on the continent with Chad facing floods after heavy rains.
