Another big chill to descend on SA

2012-08-06 08:20

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.

      The only chill we feel here in Durban is when we go into the cold room for another beer!

      @tebo.go.5 - I've noticed your snarkiness on a couple of sites now. If you don't have anything constructive to add, then please, don't comment at all.

      @Alicia - Just saw the mountain just behind the Helderberg, the snow comes way down, it's the lowest I've seen it in years. The rest of the HH mountains are still covered in cloud, should be awesome when it lifts.

      Rudi, we, here in the Orange Free State, don't need a fridge. Our kitchen keeps things at almost zero.

      keith.roberts.98434 - 2012-08-07 06:12

      Oh! And we don't have snow because it is both too cold and too dry. No water in the taps. Rumour has it that the mains pipes bringing water from the Caledon river were stolen.

  • BigChiefPlumbPudding - 2012-08-06 13:42

    Now, who is responsible for this? ANC/DA, that's all I want to know?

      zambezi.river - 2012-08-06 16:23

      Starts of in the Western Cape,so it has to be DA !

      Tankiso Mogoje - 2012-08-06 17:28

      It's obvious 'cause it started from the Western Cape.

      flyswat - 2012-08-06 20:18

      Actually, no. Neither. It started over the ocean, way up in the clouds (the short version). It was actually your god's fault...

      bakers.dozen.14 - 2012-08-07 11:04

      @ flyswat : yours must be the god of flies
