The snow is coming! Late Saturday evening (15 July) into the early hours of Sunday morning (16 July) we will see a sizeable cold front make landfall in the Western Cape bringing with it weather conditions suitable for a nice snow dump over many parts of South Africa. Starting over the Western Cape Mountains ranges with many high lying regions such as Matroosberg possibly getting nearly 30cm of snow.
The cold front will move on bringing snow to a few parts of the Northern Cape, specifically Calvinia, Sutherland and surrounds, with some flurries in parts of the Karoo area. As Sunday progresses we should also see some snow Sunday afternoon and night into the early hours of Monday morning over large parts of the Eastern Cape including Graaff Reinet, Hogsback, Dordrecht, Barkly East, Lady Grey, Rhodes and more. Lesotho Drakensberg and surrounding areas will receive snow at the same time with some snow possible early Monday morning over Central Lesotho mountains and Sani Pass.
Unfortunately right now we are not seeing any snow for KZN other than a few light flurries over Kokstad and Matatiele, nothing that looks like it will settle. Things could change however between now and then and we will keep you updated SnowReporters. Stay safe and stay warm!:
