Disruptive snowfall to be expected from Thursday- SA weather service



The SA Weather Service warned residents in the high lying areas of Western Cape, Northern Cape and Eastern Cape to expect ‘disruptive’ snowfalls from Thursday.

“The public and small stock farmers are advised that snowfall, strong winds, heavy rain, flooding and very cold conditions can be expected.

“Disruptive snowfalls can be expected over high lying areas of the Western Cape, Eastern Cape and Northern Cape on Thursday evening into Friday,” said a forecaster.

Most parts of the country are currently experiencing windy and chilly conditions as a result of the cut-off low pressure system that is expected to make landfall.

The forecaster on Tuesday said: “This system also carries the potential for heavy rainfall, severe thunderstorms and strong to gale force winds in places.”

“A cut-off low pressure system has started developing southwest of the country today, resulting in isolated to scattered showers and thundershowers in the central and southern parts of the country”.
