The cold front will continue to move across the country into the Northern Cape on Thursday morning and further across into areas such as Hogsback in the Eastern Cape.
The snow fall is expected in the Eastern Cape on Thursday going into Friday morning.
The snow should also extend right into Southern and Central Lestho during Thursday, moving all the way up to Northern Lesotho and the Sani Pass area later in the day and early hours of Friday morning.
