What happened?
For the last couple of weeks we have entered the time range where the number of sunshine hours per day, far exceeds the night hours. This leads to hot conditions over the central plateau covering two thirds of Namibia, basically the whole Botswana, a large chunks of western Zimbabwe, western Zambia and southern Angola. This heat creates a marked low pressure area which draw in airflow from the adjacent high pressure areas over the south Atlantic and south of Madagascar.
