This week, the South African Weather Service predicted widespread showers and thundershowers from Monday until Wednesday over the following provinces: Eastern parts of North West, northern and eastern Free State, Gauteng, Limpopo, Mpumalanga and KwaZulu-Natal…
Due to the extent of cloudiness, temperatures also dropped significantly, with a cold front affecting most of the eastern interior of the country until Thursday.
This will result in widespread thundershowers over the north-eastern provinces which will persist into Tuesday as the low pressure system is expected to move only slightly eastwards. The risk for heavy rain remains on Tuesday for Limpopo and KwaZulu-Natal provinces.
By Wednesday the weather system will be over Mpumalanga, resulting in partial clearance in the west, however, the north-eastern parts of KwaZulu-Natal can still expect some showers as the air-flow will still be favourable for the area. The KwaZulu-Natal north coast and adjacent areas will still be at risk of further heavy rains on this day, into Thursday morning.
Conditions all round are set to improve from Thursday afternoon onwards, with a gradual recovery in daytime temperatures.
According to SnowReport SA, the country received its first dose of snow near the Lesotho border this week! Snowfalls were recorded on the top of Sani Pass and at the Tiffendel ski resort in the Eastern Cape.
