PICS: South Africans see a snow-filled weekend as cold snap continues

Part of South Africa endured an intense cold front over the weekend.

Disruptive snowfalls were experienced over the mountainous areas of the Cape Winelands, the West Coast and Overberg districts, as well as the southern high ground of the Northern Cape on Saturday night into Sunday morning. 

But the cold and rainy conditions are far from over. The South African Weather Service warns that the cold front will continue to cause strong winds, high seas and possible flooding for large parts of the Western Cape before moving over the rest of the country.

Meanwhile, high seas with wave heights from 6 to 6.5m are expected between Cape Agulhas and East London, moderating from the west.
