Abstract : This report is a climatological study of Southern Africa, a region that comprises The Republic of South Africa, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Lesotho, Swaziland, Botswana, Madagascar and the southern parts of Mozambique, Angola, Zaire, and Zambia. After describing the geography and major meteorological features of the entire study area, the study discusses the major climatic controls of each of Southern Africa's six climatic 'commonality' regions in detail. Each 'season' is defined and discussed in considerable detail, to include typical weather, clouds, visibility, winds, precipitation, and temperature.
