This upper-air high pressure cell is coupled with a low pressure core close to Antarctica around which the regular vortex sequence flowed, yet the core persists.
This would push all the low pressure systems (unsettled weather) on a path towards Iceland and allow the normally reliable Azores high pressure cells (settled weather) to reach the UK.
The succeeding anticyclone establishes itself east of the continent; it feeds a deep, and moist, airflow into the subcontinent but the next Atlantic high pressure cell prevents this system from settling over Namibia, pushing it instead within a matter of a day or two, over Botswana and South Africa's Northern Cape province.
As the season progresses, this high pressure cell extends its influence over the sub-continents, offsetting the dominant winter flow from the South Atlantic high.
