Dean from Aero Weather advised on the following outlook for this coming weekend, at this stage
General trend is for a surface trough over the central interior, with heat-generated afternoon thunderstorms for Fri, Sat and Sunday.
The thunderstorms probability increases Sunday as a steep upper trough approaches Cape Town (resulting in increased uplift over Gauteng).
Friday clear until 1300 local when cumulus develop at FL120 bases, developing into ISOL CB.
Near-surface winds will be 34020KT to 25KT, but only 15KT early AM.
Saturday AM less wind approx 02012KT.
Again PM cumulus build-up after 1400 local, developing into ISOL CB, bases FL130.
Sunday repeats the pattern, but CB development very late PM.
Winds near surface approx 36013KT.
