Cape Town – There have been reports of snow in the Western Cape.

Users on Twitter reported seeing snow on Matroosberg and other mountains around Ceres on Saturday.

Ceres is about 150km from Cape Town and is the gateway to the Cedarberg Mountains.

A cold front arrived in the Western Cape before the weekend and warnings of very cold conditions were issued.

Weather forecasters predicted snow would fall in the higher-lying regions of the Eastern Cape, Lesotho and the Free State.

      I don't mind thumbs down, but this makes no sense. Jealous that I saw snow? Did not understand? Don't know where the Hex River Valley is? Huh?

      Andrew, since I grew up there I can tell you that is way to early still for the snow to be low enough to access via roads on the mountains. Your best best will be to wait between mid July and mid August. That's usually the time where people gets nuts and make snow angels. LoL

    It's only accessible by 4x4 for now. I'm following Matroosberg on FB (or check out their website)
