The organisation posted a weekend snow update on Friday morning:

“A small weather system will deposit a light snowfall up to 5cm across the mountains around Tiffindell in the Eastern Cape from late tonight, including the possibility of a few cm on the Barkly Pass.”

“In the early hours of Saturday morning the high peaks on the central Drakensberg and Lesotho will get between 10cm and 20cm of snow, but since the freezing level is high we don’t expect anything other than high up on the highest peaks in the region.”
