Snow on the way for the Western Cape! There is a system lingering off the Western Cape that is already bringing some light rain to Cape Town and the South Western parts of the province. Snow is expected to start during the early hours of tomorrow morning and with the freezing level expected to drop down to 1,500m over the south west, snow is possible on almost all the high peaks. We are not expecting heavy snow, with the most snow expected on the Sneeukop outside Wellington with about 15cm being possible. The Matroosberg peak is expected to get 7cm to 10cm with very little expected lower down.
Initially snow is expected on the Hex River Mountains during the early hours of Tuesday morning and then as the front moves east and the freezing level drops later on Tuesday and into Wednesday morning, light snow seems possible on all the high peaks from Stellenbosch in the south to Citrusdal in the north.
Wednesday will see light snow continuing over the western parts while moving east to include the high peaks of all the mountain ranges right across to the east of the province including the Langeberge and the Swartberge. Some light flurries may extend into the Eastern Cape to the east of Uniondale. There is a slight chance that some light snowfalls could also be experience in the far south of the Northen Cape, south of Sutherland during Wednesday afternoon. All snowfalls are expected to cease late on Wednesday afternoon as the moisture is pushed south.
