No more snow expected

No more snow was expected for Johannesburg or the rest of the country, the SA Weather Service said today.

“We are not expecting much in terms of weather. It looks like it’s going to be clear for most of the country,” forecaster Dipou Tawana said.

Light snow fell over some Joburg areas yesterday including Auckland Park, Northcliff, Benoni and Boksburg.

It came days after unusual weather caused chaos in parts of the country.

On Tuesday, snow fell heavily in the Warden, Harrismith and Van Reenen’s Pass areas, reaching depths in excess of one metre.

As a result, many motorists and truck drivers were left stranded along the N3 highway.

The economic cost of road closures caused by snowfalls in KwaZulu-Natal was an estimated R400 million.
