I see that Accuweather are predicting 31mm for TR tomorrow (Tues). Will be interesting to see how much actally falls.

Looking at the web cam it looks like there are a few dark clouds around at Nossob.

20 days till arrival at TR. I cant wait.

Hi Jannie

I see on the webcam it is very wet around Nossob. Any rainfall figures available? I presume it was yesterday evening (Wednesday 1 Feb).

Morning All, from a wet Kgalagadi.


It has been raining since yesterday afternoon; it’s been n light drizzle the whole night. I just came back from samevloeiing and it looks good. At last it seems that our rains are here.

The park will indeed be very green in a week’s time after this rain. I have asked the section rangers for the rainfall during January 2012 in their areas as soon as i receive it i will post it

Have a great one

KG
