While parts of the South African province enjoyed some much-needed rain, others woke up to find their areas of residence had been transformed into a winter wonderland.
Snow fell in the Kwazulu-Natal Midlands yesterday (November 15). Parts of the Southern Drakensberg, Swartberg, Underberg, Eastern Cape and Lesotho regions have experienced snowfall. Who would have expected snow in mid-November?
Ladysmith residents should brace themselves for more rain and cold according to the South African Weather Service.
“South Africans can expect a cold snap to affect most parts of the country as a steep upper-air trough, having the potential to cut off and further intensify, will result in significantly cooler weather over most parts of the country on Wednesday into Thursday, with the expectation of snowfalls on some southern mountains,” said the South African Weather Services (SAWS).
So, get your hot drinks ready as it is going to be a cold couple of days.
