    If we work on seasons and we talking about Durban water. In winter the temp is 19-20 and in summer about 24-25 degrees.(From what i've seen on DSTV Weather Channel)

    It would depend on were you are, you would have to attach a location. The coldest should be around dawn (longest time with no sun)
