Southern Africa has been experiencing high temperatures in recent months. In October, Zimbabwe experienced a heatwave with temperatures in Kariba reaching 45°C. In late October, temperatures in Vredendal, South Africa reached a maximum of 48.4°C, breaking the record for the highest worldwide temperature for that month.

Southern Africa is not alone. 2015 is the warmest year on record.
