The Western Cape will experience a drop in temperature across the province, which may result in snowfall due to a cold front which is currently moving in from the west.

Snow Report SA says there is a possibility of 5cm of snow falling down to below 2 000m on the Hex River Mountains, the Boland Range, the Matroosberg mountains and also in the Cederberg from Wednesday afternoon into the late evening.  

Once the weather clears the snow may be visible from Franschhoek, Paarl, Wellington, Wolseley, Tulbagh, and from the N1 near Rawsonville, Worcester and De Doorns, as well as the Bain’s Kloof Pass. 

By Thursday morning a light dusting of snow is expected to fall on Swartberge near Ladismith, Calitzdorp and Oudtshoorn, and on the mountains to the East and West of Uniondale. 

Snow is unlikely to settle at levels that are accessible by vehicle, except on top of Matroosberg where some light snow is possible, and there is also a possibility that the top of the Swartberg Pass will receive light dustings as well.
