Heavy snow fell in both the northern and southern parts of Lesotho over the weekend all due to the first wave of a massive cold front; these are the photographs from the area.

 

Lesotho (13 July 2020) – The cold front that first hit the Western Cape on Friday, blew across South Africa causing chilly winds and snowfall in neighbouring Lesotho. With the first wave over, we were sent beautiful pictures as we wait for the second chill to hit Gauteng from Tuesday.

South Africa is blessed to have a variety of climates. Our summers are glorious and sunny, our winters cold but mostly short. While Gauteng has warm rainy summers, the Western Cape is lashed with rains in their cold months. KwaZulu-Natal has all-round good weather but is impacted by humidity. The central parts of South Africa are swelteringly hot and freezing cold depending on the season. In summary, you can be anywhere in South Africa, and have brilliant weather. Even landlocked Lesotho has the best of all worlds!

Over the weekend, the mountainous country had snowfall throughout the area. They experience snow in the north and south of the country. Both the Afriski Mountain Lodge (in the North) and the Semonkong Lodge (in the South) had heavy snow.

The lodges both shared images of their snowfall with us and we are a little envious that we can’t jump across and go build a snowman.

Take a look at the snow photos below.

Be warned, the cold is here to stay a little while longer. Gauteng weather announced last night that another cold front is due to hit Gauteng on Tuesday. We can expect minus temps plus wind which really makes the cold cut through you. So be sure to dress warm and spend a few minutes defrosting in the sunshine if you can.
