Local Weather - The Feathered Nest
Situated in a transition zone combining the climates of the highveld, bushveld and semi-desert, our specific climate is somewhat eclectic. Ranging from hot summer days with afternoon thunderstorms and rain, to crisp dry winter days where early morning frost is a common visitor warming to midday temperatures that allow t-shirts as the norm. The climate is warm to tropical with summer temperatures averaging between 25°C and 35°C during the months of November to January, and the temperatures can rise to + 30°C. A "hot" day can be considered 38°C.
Our nights are comfortably warm. Winter evenings can be cold but our winters are rather short, starting in May ‘til August (where the colder months are June and July) and the winters are actually "eased into and out of". The average rainfall in the region is 550 ml per year, with the height of the rainy season being from January to March. The Feathered Nest is situated in a "non malaria" area.
Our winter season begins towards the end of April ’til September with September 1st being the official first day of spring. South Africa is blessed to have terrific weather most of the year round.
