Weather in Cape Town

Cape Town Summer

As you all know Cape Town can have all seasons in one day, sometimes within one hour.

But as we are approaching summer and lots of tourists might ask the question: How is the weather in Cape Town in summer?

Here is what I found on the Interweb 😉

Cape Town enjoys an ocean Mediterranean climate, with mild, moderately wet winters and dry, warm summers. Summer, which lasts from early December to March, is warm and dry with an average maximum of 26.0 °C (79 °F) and minimum of 16.0 °C (61 °F). The region can get uncomfortably hot when the Berg Wind, meaning “mountain wind”, blows from the Karoo interior for a couple of weeks in February or early March.

Late spring and early summer may sometimes feature a strong wind from the south-east, known locally as the Cape Doctor, so called because it blows air pollution away.

Cape Town’s average amount of sunshine per year (3,100 hours) compares favourably with that of Los Angeles (3,300 hours) and exceeds that of Athens and Madrid (2,900 hours).

In short words: The summer in Cape Town is awesome!
