The cold front has arrived in the Western Cape, and indications are that some snow has already fallen on the high peaks. Light snow will continue to fall on the high peaks for the rest of today and into the night. Tomorrow morning should see some snow on the ground in the areas of the Northern Cape as indicated on the map, and snow falls will start in the EC around Graaff-Reinet, and extend over all high ground of the Eastern Cape between Graaff-Reinet and Hogsback by early afternoon. These falls will be accompanied by heavy rain, and may not settle nicely as a result. Saturday morning will also see the start of snow falling on the KZN Drakensberg, which will continue for the whole of Saturday and the whole of Sunday. By Saturday evening, we should be seeing snow on the EC Drakensberg, a few areas in the EC around Hogsback, and possibly in the Kokstad to Matatiele areas. Once again, heavy rain accompanying the snow, so settled snow might be washed away quickly. Early Sunday morning could see flurries through many areas of the KZN Midlands, but once again, we are not expecting too much to settle due to the rain conditions. The majority of snow will fall on the KZN Drakensberg and eastern Lesotho, and areas close to the KZN Drakensberg may see some snow coming down in the nearby villages, such as Underberg. By the early hours of Monday morning, all falls will cease.
