Weird and wacky weather: winter temperatures and snow for the berg

2009-11-14 00:00

FROM stinking hot to freezing cold. The province’s determinedly wacky weather will have confused residents marching to its tune again next week, as the weather office yesterday issued summer snow warnings.

According to Weather SA forecaster Ntobeko Nkangane, the icy conditions, which he described as unusual for this time of year, are set to prevail until Monday evening, when clearing should begin.

Snowy conditions will move across the province, with temperatures plummeting to 16 degrees in the capital city tomorrow, and just 13 on Monday, with a 60% chance of rain on both days.

Snow is expected to be confined to the high peaks of the Berg.

“There will be lots of drizzle and lots of fog, accompanying this strong cold front,” said Nkangane.
