Being in the Southern hemisphere means the seasons in Johannesburg are opposite to those of Europe and North America. Autumn comes in late February and stays till April in Johannesburg. During this season, the rain does not fall regularly. Although it is usually warm in the daytime, it can feel quite chilly during the evening and it is not uncommon to experience freezing temperatures at night. You should come prepared for such fluctuation by bringing suitable clothing for both mild and cold weather.
