No rain relief seen for South Africa’s drought-striken southwest – weather service



JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) – South Africa’s drought-stricken southwest, where the city of Cape Town is located, faces severe water shortages and is still expected to experience higher average temperatures and periodic hot spells, the weather service said on Friday.

Above-average rainfall is expected over the northeast and interior, which includes much of the maize belt, the weather service said in its monthly assessment which provides forecasts for the following five months.
