“Snow on the high peaks to the west of Wellington seem likely at this stage. Matroosberg could get up to 20cm on its’ peak, and we might even see some on the ground at the reception area on Friday morning,” said the organisation.

“Falls of 4cm to 11cm could also cover the Cedarberg and Hex River Mountains. There is a lot of rain expected with this front, and this could impact on the snow falls and cause rapid melt, but we are certainly hoping to see snow on the high peaks if the clouds lift in time. We expect snow to fall from around early afternoon on Thursday and stop falling by late afternoon on Friday, with the heaviest fall during Thursday night.”
