Cape Town - The winter is on our doorstep, and judging by the recent snow-filled weekends, SA is in for a white winter season. 

Afriski in Lesotho on Tuesday morning, 10 May, tweeted a pic of more snow flurries, following a weekend of snow in the SA-landlocked country. 

Cold and rainy conditions are forecast over most of the country for the rest of the week, especially over the north-eastern Eastern Cape, Lesotho and south and western KwaZulu-Natal. In these and surrounding areas, a 60% chance of rain, accompanied by cold temperatures, can be expected.

Snow Report SA also says that, "Certain parts of Lesotho, including the Maluti Mountains around Afriski may experience very light flurries of snow late on Tuesday evening, 10 May, and into the early hours of Wednesday morning".

SA has seen three snowy weekends this year, the first being in March, over the Easter long-weekend, already. 

Over the past weekend, again, snowfall was recorded at Sani Pass, on the southern Drakensberg in KwaZulu-Natal and in the Eastern Cape at Tiffindell.
