Barometric pressure

Pretoria is situated in a valley surrounded by the Magaliesberg mountain range. This landscape has an effect on the atmospheric pressure. The mountains block or redirect air masses, influencing the pressure. The valley traps cold air, making winter mornings cold.

The surrounding mountains also force air to rise, cool, and condense, resulting in afternoon thunderstorms during summer. These storms are common from October to April. The terrain around Pretoria plays a significant role in shaping the local climate.
