Johannesburg - For those who hoped that winter was almost over there is some bad news: more cold weather is heading for South Africa.

The SA Weather Service warned that parts of the country would experience some wintry weather on Monday and Tuesday with a maximum temperature of 8°C forecast for Johannesburg, reported Beeld.

Very cold and wet weather with possible snowfall was forecast for the Western Cape, Eastern Cape, Northern Cape, Free Sate and KwaZulu-Natal on Monday.

The cold weather would last for most of the week but was expected to clear up by the weekend.

Another cold front was expected early next week but would be less icy than the one set to hit this week.

Early morning temperatures in Johannesburg on Tuesday would be -3°C.
