All indications are that thunderstorms will develop over parts of South Africa today. Storms are expected in the Northern Cape, North West, Free State, Eastern Cape and Kwazulu Natal Provinces. Isolated storms can also be expected over Gauteng later in the afternoon.

Once again the SAWDIS would like to ask SAWDIS Weather and Disaster Observers and the Public to keep the SAWDIS informed of any severe weather approaching and building in their respected areas. Also provide the SAWDIS with images, photos and reports of storm damage.

In order to raise awareness about the importance of being prepared for severe weather, the SAWDIS teamed up with HAMNET, Stormchasing SA, Eumetsat and other organizations to observe Severe Weather in South Africa.

Being prepared is the key to staying safe this 2011/2012 Storm Season.
