It may be Spring… but South Africans in some parts of the country have woken up to a winter wonderland after snowfall last night, as forecast by Snow Report SA earlier this week.

Farmers in the Vrede district, who experienced summer rains on Friday, awoke this morning to the rare sight of snow-covered fields. Glynda Norwitz Kramer, who has a farm in the area, said: “Hello winter ❄️ in October.”

The photos were taken near Verkykerskop, near to Warden, in the Free State… just over a couple of hours’ drive from Johannesburg.
