DURBAN - RESIDENTS living in the Underberg area woke up to light snowfall yesterday. Snow was also predicted along the Lesotho border.

Sani Pass Tours reported snowfall along their route from morning until after midday.

However, no further snowfall is expected for the remainder of the week.

South African Weather Services (Saws) forecaster, Thandiwe Gumede, said the colder weather is expected to move along the eastern parts of the KwaZulu-Natal from today.

“There is still some rain predicted over the northern and coastal areas but we can expect clearer weather for the rest of the week,“ she said.

Saws said a weather alert remains in place for KZN and the Eastern Cape.

"There is still an alert for possible flooding for today right up until this evening and some light rain is expected tomorrow (Wednesday). We will look throughout the day to see if we need to continue with the alert but basically the bad weather is expected to subside tomorrow," said forecaster, Mbavhi Maliage.

Saws said KZN residents could expect cloudy weather with isolated showers over the northern parts and along the coast in the morning, otherwise partly cloudy and cool, but cold in the south-west.

“The wind along the coast will be moderate southerly to south-easterly north of Mandeni in the morning, otherwise moderate to fresh northerly to north-easterly,” it said.
