Winter is coming! And faster than we anticipated… The first snowfall is predicted to fall over parts of the Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal on Thursday, 29 April.
The South African Weather Service (SAWS) warned of low temperatures and light snowfall over the Drakensberg regions of the Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal.
SAWS expects 80% rain in some regions, as well as localised flooding along the east coast of the country. Temperatures will dip to 15°C in Komani and Makhanda.
On the other end of that spectrum, areas further up north like Lephalale and Musina can expect hot weather with temperatures reaching over 30°C.
It’s time to break out the blankets and snuggle up, if this weather is anything to go by, South Africa is in for an icy-cold winter.
