May 18, 2015 – SOUTH AFRICA – Warnings of a bitterly cold winter this year is fast becoming a reality for South Africans, as snow fall was reported again this weekend in the higher parts of the country and Lesotho on Sunday, 10 May.
Snow fall was reported to Snow Report SA’s Facebook page by travellers on the Sani Pass in KwaZulu-Natal, and from Lesotho’s AfriSki Mountain Resort.
Snow fall was also reported from the Letseng Diamond Mine plant in Mokhotlong, Lesotho, and in Elliot in the Eastern Cape.
The South African Weather Service, in their seasonal weather report, warned that below-normal maximum and minimum temperatures are to be expected until the end of May this year.
After May, a colder than usual winter is expected to be felt especially in the Eastern Cape of SA, among other regions. Traveller24 reported earlier that a longer than usual winter with bitterly cold, dry conditions, and plenty of heavy frost and sub-zero temperatures can be expected in these areas.
