Denise Biggs was met with a blanket of snow as she woke up in the Eastern Cape this morning
As South Africa does it's best to survive the almost-nuclear winter we are having, today would be as good a day as any to bring your duvet to work.

The snow has found its way to our plains on the back of a country-wide cold front, and it isn't just the moutainous regions that are enjoying a flurry: Parts of KZN, Eastern Cape and Free State are being covered by a wonderful white dusting.

Snowfall in South Africa

The South African Weather Service have warned that snowfall in all three of the aforementioned areas will be disruptive, and advised motorists to take extra care on the roads:
Eastern Cape - #SNOW ROADS CLOSED: N9 Lootsberg Pass, R61 Wapadsberg Pass, R57 Nico Malan Pass, R58 Barkly Pass

Winter woke up with a point to prove this morning. Temperatures plummeted overnight, with Johannesburg recording a baltic one-degree reading earlier on. The forecast is great news for people who like wearing layers...
There's snow heading to KZN. Get those winter jackets ready #Durban

South Africa's budding photographers were on hand to capture the best of the scenes from this morning, as more snowfall is predicted the mid-to-east regions. Stay safe, stay warm, and stay as near to a heater as possible.
