Weather in Cape Town
Five-day forecast and general climate information
- Min temp16°C
Cape Town's climate is difficult to predict because of two opposing ocean currents and a mountain range creating micro-climates. Summer temperatures (Dec-Feb) often exceed 30°C, but are cooled by a strong southeast wind; the Winelands get considerably hotter. Winter (Jun-Aug) sees cold fronts bringing some spectacular storms. These are interspersed with beautiful sunny days reaching into the low 20s. Nights are cold but not frosty on the coast, although snow does fall on inland peaks.
