‘Disruptive snowfall’ expected to hit the Western Cape this week

The South African Weather Services says South Africa will experience cold temperatures and snow in some Provinces in the coming days.

Three provinces are expected to encounter the snowfall which has been described as disruptive: The Western Cape, the Eastern Cape, and the Northern Cape.

“An intense cold front associated with an upper cut-off low-pressure system is expected to affect the Western and Northern Cape Provinces as well as the Eastern Cape from Wednesday (30/09/2020) evening into Friday (02/10/202) morning.”

“Disruptive snowfalls can be expected over the high lying areas of the Western Cape, Eastern Cape, and Northern Cape on Thursday evening into Friday. Strong, southernly winds are expected in places over the western interior on Thursday.”

Public and small stock farmers have been advised that snowfall, strong winds, heavy rain, flooding, and very cold conditions can be expected.

Temperatures are expected to drop within the next 24 to 48 hours.
