More parts of South Africa can expect a dusting of snow – a day after snowfall was recorded in the Western Cape – as the icy weather moves inland.
Cape Town experienced heavy rain on Monday and Tuesday morning and snow fell in the Matroosberg mountains on Monday afternoon.
Cloudy and cold to very cold conditions, with scattered showers, have been forecast for the Western Cape. Snowfall is expected over the mountainous areas into the late morning.
And as the cold weather moves inland, cold, wet and windy conditions have been forecast for the Northern Cape and Free State too. Cold to very cold conditions are also expected across the Eastern Cape. Snow is expected in parts of these provinces.
Gauteng, Mpumalanga and the North West can also expect chilly conditions.
“The public should take note that significant and widespread frost is expected over the western and central interior from Wednesday through to Friday,” the SAWS said.
