Just when you thought snow season was over for the year, forecasts are pointing to more snow in the Cape later this week.

This morning a cold front passed over the city, with Capetonians waking up to steady rainfall – sadly not enough to significantly impact dam levels but possibly enough to stabilise them for yet another week. This seems to be a steady pattern we’ve noticed over the past two months.

A high of 15 degrees is expected for today. Temperates are expected to dip below 10 degrees during the early hours on Friday morning, an unusual occurrence for late October as compared to recent years. Snow flurries are expected on the higher, outlying peaks by daybreak Friday.

By Saturday temperatures will rise steadily, a high of 25 degrees is predicted for Sunday.
