The icy chill in the air means that the predicted snow has finally made landfall across the Western Cape, from Worcester to the Matroosberg Nature Reserve. The snow is predicted to continue falling in Sneeukop, just outside of Wellington and later make its way to the peaks of Stellenbosh and Cirtusdal.

Snow Report predicts that today will be the last day of snowfall for this week as the moisture ushers southward.

As the dam levels rise, locals can rejoice that the snowfall may cause a further increase in water levels.

Table Mountain is experiencing a light dusting of snow today.
