SA National Severe Weather Warning: 21 October 2011 16h00 SAST


The severe weather warning charts of the SA Weather Service are once again in shambles this afternoon.  Some provinces reflect veld fires and discomfort, extremely hot in green colours.  The individual images reflect that there are no warnings nor advisories in effect but in the detail section veld fire danger and discomfort, extremely hot conditions are expected.  Now is this a warning or no warning?

This is not the first time this has happened and it now frequently happens. 


PLEASE SAWS COULD YOU GET THIS CORRECT IN FUTURE.  THE WELL BEING OF PEOPLE DEPENDS ON THESE WARNINGS AND IF YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE IN SOUTH AFRICA THAT WILL BE ALOUD TO ISSUE WEATHER WARNINGS UNDER THE PROPOSED NEW LEGISLATION THEN AT LEAST  ISSUE CORRECT AND NON CONFUSING SEVERE WEATHER WARNINGS.
