As predicted by the South African Weather Service, two winter systems breezed in making this an extremely cold and snowy weekend in Southern Africa.

Afriski reports that more snow fell overnight and in the early hours of this morning, with parts of the resort now measuring 15-20cm of snow!

In fact there’s been so much snow that roads are currently closed to all class vehicles, until further notice.
