Cold snap to affect South Africa this week

JOHANNESBURG – Parts of South Africa have been experiencing almost spring-like temperatures of late, but a nearing cold front will be a reminder that winter isn’t over just yet.

Major snow fall is expected over the high-lying areas of the Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal during Wednesday and Thursday.

As with most significant snow events in South Africa, a ridging high pressure system and well developed cut-off low will work together to bring about very cold conditions over the next two days virtually countrywide.

While very cold conditions, localised mountain snow, and widespread rain will already affect the Cape Provinces from Wednesday, the northern provinces will remain fine and hot.

Conditions will however be extremely favourable for runaway fires on the Highveld and in parts of North West, Free Stat,e and Gauteng as a result of strong northwesterly winds on Wednesday.

Thunderstorms are expected in KZN and parts of the eastern Free State from Wednesday afternoon.

Snow will settle on the Western Cape mountains from early in the day, spreading the Eastern Cape later, and by evening moderate snow is anticipated for the high-ground of the province.
