The cold weather is here. Rain and hopefully some snow!! Book your holiday at www.bigskycottages.co.za or call 0713549209. We still have availability for this week and weekend. Come play in the snow! #snow #cerestourism #WolseleyZa #rain #cosyfireplace #spaciouscottageIt looks like the cold front has arrived in Cape Town, and the temperature should be dropping already. We are still expecting snow falls on the high peaks of the Cederberg, and the high peaks around Ceres, Wellington, Paarl and Worcester. Snowfalls should start late tonight, and continue through to sunrise. We are not expecting any more than 5cm on any peak at this stage, despite the freezing level dropping to 1500 meters during the early hours tomorrow morning. We are starting to see potential for some light snow in the EC late night on Wednesday, and during the early hours of Thursday, and some potentially heavy falls in Lesotho (50cm+) from Wednesday night through to Thursday afternoon. We will keep monitoring this, and put out another forecast tomorrow morning if this holds true for the EC and Lesotho overnight. Keep warm, and stay safe. ... See MoreSee Less
