From braaiing in swimming pools to memes of melted cars on the tarmac, there was more than enough on social media to distract people from the relentless heat.
The heatwave, hot conditions and fire danger conditions started on Monday.
The SA weather service warned of “an extreme heatwave” on Wednesday.
Some alleviation will come with a cold front, bringing cooler temperatures and some rain from Thursday.
The heatwave is too much. 😭😭😭 pic.twitter.com/gStQzKRhGN— H O P E F V L (@IncenseSA) February 5, 2020
