There is a distant cold front that may bring light dustings of snow to the high peaks of the Western Cape, Eastern Cape, Lesotho and the Southern Drakensberg. This front is due to hit early next week (around the 28th), but a lot can change between now and then, so we will update again on Friday this week with the latest developments.
We have had a report from Brian at Sani Mountain Lodge that they have had ‘light snow on and off’ through the afternoon. No significant falls though.
The first report is in! It is snowing at Afriski in Lesotho this morning!
Our snow forecast from Wednesday remain valid. There is a slight chance of snow over the KZN Drakensberg and Lesotho this afternoon and evening (17th May). If it happens, the falls will be light and sporadic, and will will isolated to the extreme high ground.
