SNOW UPDATE [updated Thu 13 June @ 09:09]:

We have confirmed snow - please see our facebook page for details.

The storm that is arriving from the west tomorrow may result in a very light dusting of snow on the high peaks in various parts of the Western Cape, Eastern Cape, KwaZulu-Natal and Lesotho over the next two days.

We may see very light snowfall on the high peaks in the Cederberg, the Hex River Mountains and Matroosberg, the Hottentots-Holland Mountains and the Swartberg Range near Ladismith, Calitzdorp and Oudtshoorn. The peaks near Beaufort West may also get a light dusting and the mountains to the east and west of Uniondale might also get some snow.

In the Eastern Cape we might see light snow on the peaks around Graaff-Reinet and Nieu-Bethesda, as well as in the high-ground around Hogsback, on the Barkly Pass in the region of Rhodes and Tiffindell Ski Resort, which may also get some light snow. The high lying areas around Matatiele are also on the radar, as well as the region to the east around Kokstad in KZN.

Parts of south-western Lesotho are likely to see some snowfall by Thursday, as well as the high peaks in eastern Lesotho from Sani Pass up through the central Drakensberg.

At this point snow is looking like an even lighter dusting than last week and will be accompanied by rain, so it's quite possible that much of the predicted snowfall will melt before it becomes visible.

Should you be traveling through any snow zones please be sure to take photos and/or videos and send them to us ASAP (whatsapp 081 5614213).
