The frost was thick on the ground in our HQ, Nottingham Road this morning, as things went from cold to even colder. Snow is on the ground in the western, eastern and northern Cape and the front is gradually moving east across the country.

As the weather gods ratchet up the big freeze in KZN and further afield this week, we share some of the pics posted on social media in our f-f-f-freezing neck of the woods.

Posted by the SA Weather Service on Twitter: Morning satellite image (22 July 2021). 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.
