SA weather service explains snowfall in November

Gauteng residents have been warned to prepare for a cold snap on Thursday.

The South African Weather Service said most parts of the country will be affected.

Jacqueline Modika, weather forecaster was on The Midday Report to explain the drop in temps.

Modika says the country is under the influence of a cut off low system for a few days ago which generates quite high energy air, clouds and a cold.

The system is still in effect but is yet to reach the Gauteng province and is more prominent in the south, KwaZulu-Natal, extreme southern parts of the Free-State and the Eastern Cape on Thursday morning.

Due to the extensive cloud cover, the freezing level dropped quite significantly resulting in the cold snap and bringing snow in the southern Drakensberg and surrounding areas.

The bulk of the weather generated from the system has already passed, says Modika.

As of Friday, temperatures will begin increasing.
