Cape Town - South Africa - and five provinces in particular - has been warned to expect extreme weather over the weekend.

The South African Weather Service issued a warning to residents of the Western Cape, the Northern Cape, the Eastern Cape, southern Free State and KwaZulu-Natal, reported the Timeslive.co.za.

The warning said a cut-off low pressure system and cold front would move over the country on Friday 13 July, bringing very cold conditions, heavy rainfall, snow and strong winds.

Snow was forecast for mountainous areas in the south-western Western Cape and for the eastern Eastern Cape by Friday night.

Temperatures would drop below freezing in certain parts of the Western Cape, Northern Cape, and Eastern Cape and snow could be expected in areas where it had not snowed in a long time or even at all.
