Cape Town – Despite a light sprinkling of snow in the Western Cape at the weekend, most South Africans can expect to enjoy warmer temperatures during the day for a bit longer, according to the SA Weather Service.

The light snow on Matroosberg followed a cold front moving in on Saturday evening.

“This won’t affect the rest of the country,” forecaster Wayne Venter said on Monday.

With the seasons changing, cooler nights could be expected but the daytime would still feel quite comfortable, he said.

Most of the country was dry and fine on Monday, with hot conditions over the Lowveld and Mpumalanga.

A cold front was expected to roll across the south-west coast, between Langebaan and Cape Agulhas, on Tuesday evening.

“We are not at this stage looking at a lot of rainfall,” said Venter.

Gale force winds reaching 65km/h were expected between Table Bay and Cape Agulhas on Tuesday afternoon.

There was a possibility of strong winds in the northern interior of the Western Cape and the southern interior of the Northern Cape on Tuesday.
