Weather in Porterville

Porterville is a Swartland town in the Western Cape, South Africa. About 2 hours drive from Cape Town. We have a mediterranean climate, which we share with the Mediterranean Basin, also parts of California, Australia and Chile. Clickable thumbnail map from GIMCW on my sidebar.

In November 2014 we sold our home and my weather report ends.

Maximum minimum thermometer
 
We use a cheap maximum and minimum thermometer. It may be out by a degree or two, but it is consistent. On the shady side of pillar at our main morning sun facing verandah - where we eat most of our meals, and flake out in the Adirondacks. This month's weather is on my sidebar, about halfway down.
