UPDATE: Pictures of Snowfall from around the Country

This story was first published on 22 July 2019 and was updated on 25 July 2019.

It seems that the snow for the 2019 winter season has arrived in South Africa.

There was a bit of snow in the Western and Eastern Cape provinces earlier this week following an intense cold front that made landfall on Tuesday. The South African Weather Service said we should expect disruptive snowfall, strong to gale force winds and heavy rain leading to flooding in the Western Cape.

The snowfall turned parts of the country into a Winter Wonderland and we scoured the internet to find some of our favourite weather updates from social media.

Take a look at some of last year’s snow pics.
