Cape Town weather is variable and can shift drastically in a day, hence the local fascination and enjoyment of figuring the cloud, rain and winds next move.
The Cape Peninsula is uniquely a Mediterranean climate, the only place in the world outside the Mediterranean that this climate pattern exists.
This means we have cool, wet winters (Temps vary, 5 – 20C) and long, dry and often windy summers (Temps vary, 15 – 35C ). .Traditionally, Spring’s arrival is on 1 September although warmer days tend to lag behind this date. November is more wind free and milder than December to March. By April, the weather is markedly cooler and wetter.
In the short 7 years we have traded we have noticed a shift in weather patterns via global warming. Even the insect patterns have changed (yes, we know our environment that well!)
