There have not been too many changes on our forecast map, but there are a few, so here is our updated map and forecast to cover the next 3 days.

We have identified high-ground that might get some snow....

Updated Snow Forecast : Eastern Cape & Lesotho : 2-3 September 2018

There is a chance of the lightest dusting of snow over the high peaks of the Hex River Mountains between de Doorns and Ceres in the Western Cape, as well as in the Cederberg today. No low level snow is expected and the quantity is so small it’s unlikely to settle on the ground. Tonight we are expecting snow in the Eastern Cape Drakensberg and in Lesotho. Our previous forecast indicated that falls would be below 5cm, but over the last...
