Snow covers Drakensberg regions


Snow fall at the Drakensberg Gardens Golf Course in Underberg on Sunday 26 July 2015.

JOHANNESBURG - The chilly weather during the weekend had most of the Drakensberg regions covered in snow.

A cold front hit most of the country on Wednesday and brought rainfall and cloudy conditions.

Snow Report SA reported that snow had fallen in the Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal Drakensberg regions.

The KwaZulu-Natal midlands experienced some snow on Saturday.

"It will be during the early hours of Sunday morning when the KZN Midlands is expected to get the best snow falls, with some areas on extreme high ground getting up to 15cm. It is starting to look like Harrismith might also get a light dusting. The Underberg area is looking the most promising for decent snow in the KZN areas, but other areas might get good snow falls too," Snow Report SA stated.


&39;By Sunday afternoon, snow falls are expected to stop as the system moves out over the sea. Some very heavy rains are going to be accompanying this system, and KZN will get most of the rain."
