Light snowfalls are expected over the Drakensberg, Lesotho and KwaZulu-Natal mountains on Saturday night, the SA Weather Service said.

“By tonight (Saturday evening) light snowfalls are expected over southern Drakensberg into Lesotho spreading to the KwaZulu-Natal region,” forecaster Edwin Thema said.

He said the cold front, which made landfall in the Western Cape around Friday afternoon, was currently over the Eastern Cape.

It would later spread across the Free State and the Northern Cape.

“(Expect) light showers over most of the Western Cape, Eastern Cape and Northern Cape,” Thema said.

The Western Cape would experience very cold conditions and isolated showers.

By Sunday morning, the cold front would cover KwaZulu-Natal, the Free State and the North West.

“Southern parts of Gauteng are expected to experience low minimums by tomorrow (Sunday) evening.”

Thema said most of the country would experience cold conditions as a result of the cold front. - Sapa
