Thunderstorms resulted in some showers over the northern and eastern parts of the Eastern Cape overnight, according to the Port Elizabeth office of the SA Weather Services.
"Snow was reported over high ground from Graaf Reinett eastwards. Radio reports claim that disruptive snow and icing has led to the closure of numerous passes, especially around the Queenstown/ Elliot region," said Garth Sampson, Spokesman for the SA Weather Service.
