There has been a considerable change in the forecast over the last 24 hours, and as we get closer to the event, we expect the forecast to be more accurate and hold more true. We will update each day going forward. As can been seen on the forecast map, we are now expecting snow in the WC, EC, NC, FS, Lesotho and KZN. The cold and wet weather will arrive in the WC during Thursday morning, with the first light snowfalls being expected on Thursday afternoon in the WC. Thursday night will see some light falls in the NC, WC and EC, and by Friday morning, the EC, NC, Lesotho and the KZN Drakensberg will get some snow.
This will continue through the day on Friday and into the night, with some heavy falls being possible over the KZN Drakensberg and a good possibility at this stage of some snow settling in the KZN Midlands. There is also a chance that light snowfalls could extend into the FS into the Golden Gate and Clarens area during Friday night. By sunrise on Saturday, all snow falls will be tailing off. This forecast is still subject to change, and will be updated daily going forward.
