Favorite thing: South Africa is famous for its sunshine. It's a dry country, with an average annual rainfall of about 400-500mm. While the Western Cape gets most of its rainfall in winter, the rest of the country generally has only summer-rainfalls.
In winter from May to September the average temperatures in Cape Town remains low between a minimum of 5░C and a maximum of 10░C.
Storms, driving rain and gale force winds strike sometimes Cape Town.The cold fronts accompanied generally by storms as well..
