Snowvember is not finished yet!!

We have been watching this system for a few days now, and hinted that it might impact the Western Cape from Tuesday next week (21st), and we still think that it will! It looks like this frontal system will bring much needed rain to the Western Cape from the early hours of Tuesday morning, with snow possible over the high ground around Ceres almost immediately, extending northwards through the Cederberg as Tuesday progresses.

By Tuesday evening, light falls are likely to continue over the Hexriver Mountains, the Cederberg, and could extend further east over the Groot Swartberge, and possibly even over the Outeniquas. We are not expecting a large amount of snow to fall, and at this stage. It looks like 4 to 5cm over most of the high peaks, but accompanied with some rain, it will bring much needed moisture to the area. As always, weather systems can change, especially at this time of year. We will put out another forecast on Monday with a bit more details.

The attached map shows the areas that we currently think will be affected by snow falls.

So it will still be there tomorrow?

That snow in the far distance.....Would that be the mountains around Impendle by any chance?

How far is the border from Himeville/Underberg? Would we be able to get snow before the border?

Is the pass open?

stored water, for later.
