I knew that there was a winter cold front coming through to Cape Town this week. I didn’t know it was a winter cold front like this though…
“The entire weather community in South Africa has eyes on the mammoth cold front developing in the South Atlantic. This system, arriving Thursday, promises to bring heavy rains and widespread snow to a great deal of SA and even Namibia if the system stays on track. Our forecasts show this system is not only staying on course but is also strengthening substantially and should make for one of the most eventful winter weekend in Southern Africa in many years.”
Ooh. And yes,that MASSIVE bank of white stuff off the coast of South America is heading our way.
And I’m not saying that it’s going to be big (although it is), but even Cape Agulhas Municipality decided to teach their residents about the basics so that they could be ready, with awesome lines such as this:
Descriptions: Snow Snow is precipitation in the form of flakes of crystalline water ice that fall from clouds. Since snow is composed of small ice particles, it is a granular material.
Amazing. Who knew?
I’ll be keeping an eye on this (the weather, not the description of snow) as it approaches and update again tomorrow.
