Snow Forecast : 9-10 December 2018 : The Drakensberg & Lesotho

Snowvember didn’t arrive as we thought it might, but it seems that we’re getting some snow in the Drakensberg in December again this year. Up to 20cm of snow looks likely to fall on the high peaks from Sunday night through Monday in the central and southern Drakensberg, including at Black Mountain further inland from Sani Pass. The freezing level is still quite high though, and any change in this could result in less or even no snow...

Snow Forecast : 5-7 November 2018 : WC, NC, EC, Lesotho

Following up from our advanced forecast yesterday, we’re still seeing possible snow across parts of the Northern and Eastern Cape, but the data is inconsistent so we have to warn that some of the snowfalls may not materialise. We do however expect some light snow to fall on the Hex River mountains and possibly in the Cederberg tonight, as well as on the Swartberg Mountains in the Western Cape. Some snow is possible on the mountains...

Northern Cape : No snow expected, but...

Advanced Snow Forecast: Eastern Cape, Lesotho, KZN, Drakensberg: 1-3 November 2018

Snow for November?!? With the extreme heat over the last week we’ve been watching the data to see if it would be followed by a significant snow event late in the season just like last year, and looks quite likely. The freezing level will drop really low from Tuesday next week in the Western Cape, the Eastern Cape, Lesotho and KZN, and if the moisture band doesn’t shift too much it seems that we’re set for widespread...

Snow Forecast: Eastern Cape, Lesotho, the Drakensberg: 17 October 2018

Up to 10cm of snow will likely fall on the high peaks of the central Drakensberg and eastern Lesotho from late this afternoon, and possibly a light snowfall around AfriSki. There is a small chance of a light dusting of snow on the highest peaks of the Eastern Cape Highlands around Rhodes and south-western Lesotho later today too. Please see our map for predicted snow-depths. It is very unlikely that there will be any low-level and...

Snow Forecast: Eastern Cape, Lesotho, the Drakensberg: 12-13 October 2018

A small weather system will deposit a light snowfall up to 5cm across the mountains around Tiffindell in the Eastern Cape from late tonight, including the possibility of a few cm on the Barkly Pass. In the early hours of Saturday morning the high peaks on the central Drakensberg and Lesotho will get between 10cm and 20cm of snow, but since the freezing level is high we don’t expect anything other than high up on the highest peaks in...
