Brrrr … it’s snowing over parts of SA

The Drakensberg resembled a winter wonderland on Sunday morning as snow fell over some parts.

According to Snow Report SA, snow has fallen over the southern Drakensberg and Kokstad.

Snow Report predicted earlier in the week that snowfall was expected in KwaZulu-Natal, Eastern Cape and Lesotho.

“Low-level snow at a level reachable by ordinary vehicle is a possibility in some areas,” it said.

“In the Western Cape, a light dusting of snow is possible on the Swartberg range near Ladismith, Oudtshoorn and De Rust.”
