WATCH: Cold snap brings snow, as winter sets in

Many South Africans will be getting a real taste of winter this week, as cold and wet weather sets in over the eastern parts of the country.

Pictures of some of the first winter snowfalls have already been rolling in.

Snow Report SA says more snow can be expected in the eastern Lesotho highlands late on Monday afternoon and evening, as well as on Tuesday.

"This afternoon into the evening, we should see light snowfall along the eastern border of Lesotho, reaching from the Maluti Mountains, down to Sani Pass, as well as on the KwaZulu-Natal Drakensberg mountain ranges of the central and southern berg," it said on Facebook. 

"The snowfall should intensify in the early hours of Tuesday morning, with falls up to 10cm in some parts."

The South African Weather Service, meanwhile, has warned of possible localised flooding.

The cold snap is expected to last until Thursday.
