The forecast may say there is a likelihood of rain every day, but this is usually given as a percentage.

like 30%, or 60% chance of thundershowers.

This means that there is a 40% to 70% chance of no thundershowers ;-0


Also, one could experience a downpour in one or two suburbs, while nothing at all comes down in the adjacent suburbs.

Remember, Johannesburg covers about 1600 Square kilometers, a vast area, bigger than greater London,

so it is possible to have flooding in one area, while on the other side of the city, it remains dry!

Overall though, as I said in a previous post, this January is the driest for many years.

For example, so far, at my home, I have had only 17mm precipitation, compared to January 2013, when I recorded 146mm ..!
