Cape Town - Another boiling hot day has been forecast for large parts of the Western Cape on Monday.

Temperatures of above 40ºC are expected in the Boland, West Coast and Little Karoo. Residents of the Cape Town metropole can expect a maximum temperature of at least 34ºC.

The South African Weather Service on Sunday issued a heatwave warning, forecasting that these conditions will last until Tuesday.

According to weather forecaster Henning Grobler, there is a slight chance of rain on Tuesday afternoon.

"If it does rain, it will not be a lot. It will, however, be overcast,” he said.

Temperatures of about 20ºC are forecast for the whole province on Wednesday.

Western Cape residents sweltered on Sunday. The mercury in the Mother City rose to 37ºC, while people in the Boland towns of Worcester, Paarl, Wellington and Ceres had to endure temperatures of over 40ºC.

On the West Coast there was also no sign of cooler weather. Residents of Clanwilliam, Redelinghuys and Vredendal were sweating it out on Sunday. Temperatures here will be as high on Monday.

Those on the south coast at George and Mossel Bay can expect temperatures of 32ºC and 34ºC.
