Thunderstorms are not uncommon in this part of the country and many afternoons will find the horizon filled with heavy clouds. Winter is typical of the interior highveld plateau: a sunny season of crisp, chilly, early mornings and cold nights (cool nights in the Lowveld) and dry afternoons. One can expect to be changing clothes as the day progresses from the cool dawn through the warm day and into the cool night. Rest assured, though, that in general the weather of the Limpopo Province will greet you with a hospitable display of sunshine and temperance.
