A dominating high pressure, over Northern South Africa, in the upper levels of the atmosphere is responsible for the EXTREME HEAT and DRY CONDITIONS!
When a high pressure sits over an area it results in the sinking of air through the atmosphere. The air compresses and heats up as it sinks.
Sometimes, the scorching heat is ensnared in what is called a heat dome.

Prolonged exposure to midday sun poses health risk. Dehydration. Heatstroke.
Stay hydrated. Seek shades/shelter. Work early morning and late afternoon and avoid midday sun exposure.
