Matroosberg Reserve in the Western Cape (outside Ceres) has reported their first frost of the year. ... See MoreSee Less
Kan dit waar wees?
Wonderfull! I cannot wait for winter
Apparently Fouriesburg has also had it's first frost.
Yay "Winter is coming"
Definite chill in the air here at the foot of Sir Lowry's Pass. Now, about the rain, please could we have a significant fall, these 10 drops a week aren't doing it for me.
Think who love winter have a big problem, give me summer, wishing could hibernate for winter.
Voel die koue in die wind hier in George. Kry solank julle ski gerei reg gaan n lang koue winter wees.
Yay. Winter is coming
Noooo. I'm not ready for the cold
That bodes well for a very wet Winter!
Thought there was a nip in the air 😉☺
Wow, send it to natal Midlands please 😯
Brrrrr and so the winter starts showing us it's chill.
No wonder I was so cold yesterday!!!
Its going to be a cold winter Dwight
Wow no way!
Wonderlik!!!! Dit beteken die winter is oppad
Oh no go away!!!!
Vroeë winter is op pad
You can keep it- we had a great spring day today
Still need summer rains !
Our forecast this morning remains the same as yesterday. We are still expecting snow over most of the high peaks in the southern and central Drakensberg (Lesotho side) tomorrow. To mention a few of the peaks, Mafadi, Champagne Castle, Giants Castle, Thabana Ntlenyana and Njesuthi. Anything between 3cm and 7cm can be expected through the day on Saturday on these high peaks. We are not expecting any snow to fall below elevations of 3,200 meters. It is unlikely that the snow will be visible from SA on Saturday, and may be visible on Sunday from vantage points in KZN if the accompanying rain doesn't wash it all away, and the clouds clear. The front is already arriving in KZN, and cold and wet weather is expected from later today. Many coastal areas in the WC and EC started reporting welcome rains from yesterday afternoon as the system has moved up the coast. The weather is clearing behind the system already. ...

Is the prediction still the same? Trying to figure out what to wear to Kestel tomorrow. Wind is picking up in Harrismith and has that icy chill.
You forgot to mention Mt. Ingele in Kokstad, buy the look of these light showers it shows that tomorrow we might see some
Any update on Underberg weather?
Cool and raining in Nottingham Road. Thunder grumbling a bit too.
Already much colder and wet in Kokstad. BRRRRRR
Hip hip hooray winter is on it's way
We had moments of sleet last night here in the southern drakensberg. If this is the beginning where are we going to end in August. Going to start planning my sled. I have a few hills I want to take on 😂
It's cold and wet in Himeville already.
Looking forward to winter
Any rain for burgersfort in limpopo.

It looks like the frontal system has arrived in Cape Town slightly ahead of schedule, bringing some much needed moisture to the area. It is unlikely to drop a huge amount of water, but after the recent heat in the Cape, we are sure that it is much appreciated by the locals. This system is what will bring the snow to the Lesotho mountains on Saturday, so we will be watching closely as it moves up the coast tomorrow into the Eastern Cape and KZN. We have loaded a clear day image of the normal view so that you can compare 🙂 We will update our snow forecast tomorrow morning. ... See MoreSee Less
It is definitely here. View of Table Mountain from Pinelands, at around 3.30pm. Now wet up to the northern suburbs
Wow, hopefully my brother & sister in law will get some snow in KZN
Do you get Webb Cams around Cape Town and on top of Table Mountain??
WoW!! Remember that When living in Cape Town, Watching the Cold Front Approching While Making a Yummy Home Made Soup & Yimmmy Red Ha Ha!!!! Well in Gauteng, Time to Turn the Geyer Elements up! Sort the Heaters, Stock up with Extra Yummy Red & Get the Soup Cooking Yummmy Brrr Ha Ha Ha!!!!!!
Been raining in East London since last night still raining
Ek het stil geword vroeg oggend , wanneer almal slaap....maar die HEMELSE VADER slaap nie , ek het gebid vir verligting ....12 uur later reën dit !!! 🙌🙌🙌
Praying the rain continues for several days in the dry Cape!
Can't say that rain has the same effect on me in Manchester!! 😉
Dis die Kaap ne, nou skyn die son en as jy jou oe knip is dit mistig en reen dit.
Raining in Paarl !!! Praise God !!!
Yay hopefully they get some rain!

The snow is still coming, but we are seeing a decrease in quantity. The cold air and moisture band, at this stage, will not push quite as far inland as the charts showed yesterday, and as a result there will be less snow. The forecast area remains the same (southern and central Drakensberg on the Lesotho side), but the snow will now more than likely be confined to the extreme high peaks like Mafadi, Njusuthi and Thabana Ntlenyana. The falls are likely to start during the early hours of Saturday morning. Yesterday, we were expecting as much as 10cm on the peaks, and this has been revised to a maximum of 4cm at this stage. The front will be making landfall in the Western Cape later today, and will make it's way up the coast during the day tomorrow. We will update again tomorrow. ... See MoreSee Less
Mafadi & Injisuthi are literally 1km apart, rather pointless mentioning both. Champagne Castle would make more sense to mention
KZN has been terribly hot this whole week so hoping for some cooling down cold frontal weather soon
So what's the prediction for the snow season guys? Will it be a good one?
Love the Snow Report SA, but seriously, can't you wait another 2 months at least?
Thanks for the info.
Rory Graeme Duncan this might affect the Kamberg 😬
always time for snow this time or April, for the first snows on the Drakensberg Mountains brrrrrrr 🙂 🙂
The front seems to be moving in faster than predicted here on the EC coast
as long as it brings much needed rain to WC and EC !!!
Raining in Cape Town.
Thanks so much for this, I enjoy this reports, have a nice evening.
Thx guys love to see all the latest from a country that stole my heart. Sylvia in Scotland u k .
Angelique. Check this out. You got some great shots in the snow last year.
Yay, let the snow chasing begin.....
Belinda Wetton julle is gelukkig! Its gonna be amazing!

Could this be our first snow of the season? Yesterday, we reported that snow was coming, and this morning, it is looking like we could get a bit more than what we saw yesterday. We might see snow falls on the eastern Lesotho high peaks from Friday night, but most snow will fall during Saturday and into Saturday night. At this stage, any falls will be confined to the southern and central Drakensberg (on the Lesotho side). Rain is also accompanying this system, so we cannot be sure how much snow will settle, but with up to 10cm expected on the extreme high peaks, like Thabana Ntlenyana, it is possible that we will get visual confirmation. It is extremely unlikely at this stage that any snow will fall in KZN. We will update again tomorrow. The map indicates the area where snow is possible. ... See MoreSee Less
I agree Shaun Tuohy, I'll be over the moon and back if we can get rain in PE and plenty of it in our catchment areas
That blue area indicated on the map is part of the Northern Drakensberg not Southern Drakensberg as mentioned in your report
Never mind the snow...
Rain pleeeeease rain in Knysna
I promise I won't complain when it's freezing cold and raining in the Cape ever again!
welcome back team
welcome back team
Yay!!! Bring on winter!
Kom winter.. Kan nie wag nie!!!
I wonder if Cape Town will ever get a good down pour again....not just the thimbleful of the other day???? Last year there wasnt much snow either.......
Charné Swart looks like your beach party is going to be a tad chilly ❄️
Again we will probably leave the berg just before it starts :(, will be at Cathedral Peak till Sunday.
How I wish it was slap bang on Port Elizabeth. So tired of this dreadful heat.
Lizelle Thysse 😱 ek kry dit net nie reg nie. Maak nie saak wanneer ek vakansie book nie. Ons kry altyd koud. Die Drakensberge hou net nie van my nie.
Donovan Lawson looks like you guys just missed the snow
We are desperate in Cape Town...
Hope Cape Town also gets some good rain
Thanks for sharing'.
Need winter !!!!
Thats good news for me. Finally winter coming!
can't wait ... bring on the snow ...
Just in time for Rob's big bash!!!
We are starting to see the possibility of some snow falling this weekend, Saturday specifically, over the extreme high peaks of eastern Lesotho. Peaks like Njusuthi, Mafadi and Thabana Ntlenyana could all see some snow from Saturday morning right through until Saturday night. Only a couple of centimeters are expected at this stage, and it is possible that the flurries won't even settle. The snow will also be accompanied by occasional rain. This is quite common during the early season, but if we get sight of anything, we will be sure to let you know. We will also update later in the week as the frontal system moving up the coast gets closer. Colder weather can be expected in the adjacent provinces over the weekend. ... See MoreSee Less
We have posted an update this morning : www.facebook.com/snowreportsa/posts/1105971422863544:0
Please we desperately need snow, lot and lots of snow here in the catchment area of the Boland Mountains. Our dams get drier by the day!
Has the Underberg area started to change to autumn colors yet?

Ah Snow Report. All about the money! Wonder why you don't offer whatsapp alerts for KZN? Trying to force people into paying the 500 instead of 100 for the KZN region alone. Typical! You've lost the love of snow and now you're following your love for money!
Despite the cooler weather across many parts of the country this morning, there is no snow! Temperatures did drop below freezing over certain peaks in Lesotho last night, and this chill is being felt both inland and at the coast. Warmer temperatures will return over the weekend and next week. ... See MoreSee Less
Hope it snows in Cathedral peak when we there in 2 weeks time would love to see it.
and its still feeling chilliy in Lesotho(Qachas Nek) yet the skies are clearing
So that's why I was shivering under my quilt!!
Cape Town is boiling with a small breeze.

We have just been looking at the charts for the next few days, and spotted something that we had to look at again and again .... there is an outside chance that snow will fall tonight in Lesotho around Thabana Ntlenyana (Southern Drakensberg). So, if there is a nip in the air tomorrow, we will all know why. If it happens, and we get confirmation, we will be sure to let you know. ... See MoreSee Less
We have spoken to Sani Mountain Lodge this morning, and there is no snow at the top of the pass, despite it being very cold! But, Thabana Ntlenyana is 600 meters higher than the lodge, so we are not ruling the fall out just yet.
We have no confirmation of snow just yet. Weather at the top is very poor, with lots of rain too. We will update if we get confirmation later this morning.
When we lived in Underberg a farmer who had lived there for many years said there had been snow on the berg every month of the year spread over many years (not all in one year)
With so much rain, does it mean a colder or warmer winter?
Rob. I was wondering. Because Mohale side its very cold
Snow in Feb that's a first
Any news? Did it snow?
We are in NUD and have our wood in the fire! It's chilly tonight!
we having rain...flooding..water rationing...snowfall...draught...extremely strange.
Nice and cold at the bottom of Sani Pass tonight. Hasn't stopped raining all day.
Unusually chilly on the South Coast too. A few days ago we were sweating it out in the normal February humidity😯

We are looking for our next location to install a snow camera! We have had much debate, and have decided that Clarens in the Free State will be getting it! We now need our awesome community to help us find a location to install the camera. The ideal position should have a clear view south, towards the Maluti Mountains, and have Wi-Fi available (although not necessary). The position should be reasonably secure to avoid theft (like a guesthouse or hotel). The camera is a standalone unit that is solar charged, and can use 3G if Wi-Fi is not available. Please tag anyone or any establishment in the comments if you think they can assist and meet the criteria. The position does not need to be in Clarens itself, but somewhere in the greater area (15 km in any direction) would be suitable.

Bruce Larter, "This photo taken from Greystone-Upon-Clarens. We have approximately 180 degree view from stretching from Mount Horeb and over the Maluti's. And we have WiFi".

Hogs back or dordrecht not bad ideas either
MALUTI mountain lodge
Nic Prinsloo Rebellie would be ideal!
We have the perfect spot! Check it out on www.oldmilldrift.co.za
Rebellie is up in the mountains. Lovely place!! On top of the mountain on the one side you can see a viilage in Lesotho and on the other side you see Clarens.
The Attic in Clarens! In Main street, upstairs with view over the mountains with wi-fi!
Why not at the Golden Gate hotel, overlooking the Brandwag Buttress? Surely the hotel has wifi
my place is 100% . we face the mountains. with one of the best views.
Meiringskloof Nature Park has the best view of the Maluti mountain range from the Maluti view area. There is WiFi signal. It's also a very popular location to stay during winter for going to Afriski www.meiringskloof.co.za
just outside Clarens is Wyndford Holiday Farm. great view of the Maluti mountains!
Also speak to Dan at Maluti Mountain Lodge - he's a very helpful guy with tourism related stuff and they have a good view from up on the hill of the town and the pass.

A few interesting stats from last year. The first and last snows are what we call 'measurable snow'. In other words, the snow settled and was able to be measured. There were flurries both before and after the dates mentioned, but the snow did not settle enough to be measured. The 31 days of snowfalls once again are "measurable falls" and do not include flurries that did not settle. Any predictions about what will happen in 2017? When do you think we will get our first measurable snow fall, and where? ... See MoreSee Less
No idea, but I sure wish it will be in Hillcrest, and today!! Need some heat relief!
How many day and what dates in the year before? It would be good to have a comparison.
Wish it would snow in the Midlands again soon so we get a cool breeze here in PMB again.
There will be more snow and greater disruptions. The cold fronts are getting stronger.
What a year!
The most interesting falls may have been 30 April 2016, where snow fell as low as 1600 m ASL in the EC, KZN and Lesotho, the late July 2016 snowfalls which may have challenged records, 1 August 2016 snowfall, where unprecedented falls of up to 5cm fell from the Ficksburg & Rosendal vicinity all the way up to Bethlehem & Kestell vicinity with thick snow by Verkykerskop and the 18 September 2016 snowfalls which had unprecedented falls of at least an inch from Van Reenen & Harrismith all the way up to Volksrust with heavy snow in places, causing road closures. Satellite images on the 19 September 2016 (morning) showed that good snow fell on the Balelesberg between Volksrust and Paulpietersburg.
The day has arrived! The SnowReport Team has trekked up to Sani Mountain Lodge - Sani Top to install our very first snow camera of 2017, exciting stuff! There is nothing like a day out in the Berg. A big thank you to Glyn Rose-Christie for sponsoring this camera as well as Sani Mountain Lodge for hosting us and our equipment. We would also like to extend our gratitude to Mohale Lodge and Katse Lodge for sponsoring the travel expenses.
The snow camera is installed and now we WAIT! You can follow the camera feed on our web page here: snowreport.co.za/snow-cameras/ ... See MoreSee Less
How long did it took to walk up to sani lodge from the border post
Any sign of early snow this year?
Those images are awesome. Thank you guys for the effort, will be doing some armchair traveling soon and hopefully visit the areas in not too distant future.
When the first snow falls we are going on a road trip Waylon Fourie
LOooking forward to the results of the installation come winter! 🙂
Wonderful can't wait for the snow pics. The berg resorts are all looking relaxed and green!
I was here Dec 2015,Lovely place
