South Africans are being warned to prepare for heatwave conditions across most parts of South Africa including the central interior and western parts of the country.
The SA weather service says temperatures are expected to peak from Wednesday with the mercury expected to hit 40 degrees in some areas.
The hot weather conditions are expected to last at least until Friday.
Forecaster Edward Engelbrecht says the only provinces excluded from the scorching heat conditions include Mpumalanga, Kwazulu-Natal and parts of Gauteng.
"We’re looking at the Free State, North West province, the western interior of the Eastern Cape, the interior of the Western Cape, as well as the Northern Cape. We’re expecting those parts of the province to expect heatwave experiences, as well as temperatures exceeding 40°C."
Engelbrecht says except for Kwazulu-Natal, Limpopo and Mpumalanga, they are not expecting much rainfall for the rest of the country for next coming week
