    Snow expected to make landfall TOMORROW – snow warning issued

    The first snow is expected! A level 1 snow warning was issued for TOMORROW in the Eastern Cape.

    The SA Weather Services (SAWS) said the first snowfall is expected to make landfall around midday on Thursday and continue until Friday.

    “The first cut-off low is expected to pass over the eastern parts of the Eastern Cape, resulting in a chance of showers and thundershowers as it moves through.

    “The upper-air system is expected to significantly drop to freezing levels, therefore resulting in a chance of snowfall over the north-eastern high ground.”

    Stage 2 load shedding will be implemented for the entire day until Sunday

    Eskom announced that Stage 2 load shedding would be implemented from 10:00 until midnight on Wednesday, 22 June, in a statement less than an hour before the power cuts are expected to start.

    Four generating units broke down on Wednesday morning, according to the power supplier, which means the capacity constraints are worsened.

    Stage 2 load shedding will be in place for even longer from Thursday – starting at 5:00 until midnight. It will remain that way until Sunday night.

    South Africa is set to enter a new era of the COVID-19 pandemic, with the government preparing to drop all remaining restrictions. A number of small inconveniences remain as part of our laws, but the Health Ministry is ready to repeal them all – including the mask rules.

    As it stands, South Africans have to wear a face covering in any indoor public place, or onboard any form of public transport. The prevalence of the virus has been low throughout 2022, and even the so-called ‘fifth wave’ in Autumn barely made a ripple in the COVID-19 data.
