“We are expecting snow in the Western Cape and Eastern Cape, heavy falls in Lesotho and the Eastern Cape Drakensberg, medium/light falls on the KZN Drakensberg, possibly coming down into towns like Underberg and Himeville, although not much expected low down, and some flurries in the KZN Midlands.

Snow is now expected further west in the Western Cape, incorporating Matroosberg (about 10cm expected on the peak tonight). Also more snow possible on the Groot Swartberg, and possibly a dusting for the Outeniquas.
