The South African Weather Services has warned of cold weather as a large cold front moves from the coastal areas over the rest of the country.
According to the Weather Forecaster Venetia Phakula, the cold front, which started driving the mercury down on Tuesday, is expected to continue across the country until Monday.
“The cold front has already made its way over the country and with it exiting the country there is a succession higher pressure that is pushing the cold air over the interior parts of the country so we expect the cold air to start affecting most parts of the country today,” says Phakula.
Phakula says the Western Cape and Eastern Cape are expected to be affected severely as they will be experiencing rainfall and windy conditions, the rest of the other provinces are expected to be affected by only by the cold conditions.
The weather service has issued a yellow level 4 warning for disruptive snowfall expected over Lootsberg, Wapadsberg, Penhoek, Outeniqua, Nico Malan, Winterberg passes as well as gravel road passes in the Tsitsikamma, Outeniqua and Baviaanskloof mountains on Thursday.
