weather predictions

As the country faces the first major cold snap of the season, South Africans have taken to social media to share all their photos of the snowfall, heavy rains, hail and thunderstorms.


Many vehicles have pulled over as hail is pelting the road and making visibility poor. Some have managed to park under bridges to prevent hail damage to their vehicles.

Brendon Snyman captured video footage of the hail just outside Johannesburg. You can see where the hail collected on the roads to almost looks like snow!

The weather predictions have been spot on! Parts of South Africa and Lesotho have received their first snowfall of the season as a cold front moves across the country.

The title image is of the snowfall just before 9 am at Afriski in the Maluti Mountains this morning.

Snow for this weekend has begun! We have seen snow fall In Tiffindell Eastern Cape as well as at Afriski in the Maluti Mountains. We have had some reports of snow elsewhere in Lesotho but no visual confirmation yet.

We urge those who can, to think of your fellow humans, some people may not have warm clothing or blankets. Sometimes even a warm meal or drink can help those in need. If you can spare anything be sure to hand it to those in desperate need.

Also remember your pets and other vulnerable animals. Check that they too have warm and sufficient shelter from the cold front.

Stay safe and warm this weekend!
