SA Warming.

First published 30 March 2016 

Analyses from the 13 national parks in South Africa which have the necessary decades of recordings show a 1.2°C increase in temperature over 50 years. However the figures vary from a 1.0 reduction in the Mountain Zebra Park to +1.95 in the Kgalagadi.  The increases are greater than projected by most mainstream climate models. (Van Wilgen and others Rising Temperatures and Rainfall Patterns in South Africa’s National Parks / International Journal of Meteorology reported in African Birdlife). The implication was of a pattern of rising temperatures in the NW to little change or decrease in the SE of the country.
