Wow, wow, wow Mzansi! We were aware of a cold front approaching SA but we weren’t really expecting the coldest day of the year and for it to snow large bits in Kimberley in the Northern Cape.

WATCH: KIMBERLEY EXPERIENCES SNOW DURING BRUTAL COLD FRONT 

A video was shared on Twitter of a person driving through Kimberley and snow literally falling from the sky onto the road ahead – a pretty amazing picture if you ask us. Former Sports Journalist Eben Jansen also posted a video on Thursday saying that he’s back in Kimberley and it’s snowing. 

“It’s bloody cold here by me, I’m standing with a cup of green tea and the snow is kinda hitting me outside the place here,” he said.

And it’s not just the Northern Cape folks, the Eastern Cape has also been covered in frost. 

WE WERE WARNED BUT IT’S STILL FREEZING 

While it’s currently snowing in Kimberley, the South African Weather Service (SAWS) did say on Monday 19 July that we could expect ‘VERY cold temperatures’ from Tuesday right up until the weekend. It said it was due to a succession of cold fronts that would sweep across the southern half of the country. 

On Thursday morning, SAWS posted a satellite image saying; “Widespread snowfall observed over the southern interior of the country. Good rainfall forecast along the south coast of the Eastern Cape. Stay warm. A very cold day ahead.” 

It seems the cold has been so intense that it has brought snow to some parts of Mzansi which we don’t see too regularly. Nevertheless, Mzansi, keep warm and we’ll keep you updated on the SA cold front.
