    40 degrees, or as they call it in Richards Bay..."a bit warm".

    Shouldn't be a problem unless you have 3-4 days of it in a row. At least you don't have the massive humidity, so fans work pretty well.

    Cape Town - If you're in Cape Town today and feel like you're in the hottest place in the world, no one can accuse you of exaggeration. According to timeanddate.com, at a whopping 42 degrees Celsius, Cape Town is officially the hottest city on the planet right now.
    That's right! It's hotter than Bangkok, Accra and Dar es Salaam. Hotter than Dubai, Riyadh and Doha!

    Midday today, it was a big 46 degrees Celsius under the trees outside my house, I was to afraid to stand in the sun to take the temp. Have you ever seen a thermometer explode?
    Currently at 18:40 it is a nice 37 degrees Celsius and the room with the fishtank is 30. Luckily the tank with the chiller stays a ever constant 26,9.

    Enjoy the late summer.
