South Africa is only a few days away from the winter season and already some parts of the country are extremely cold.
On Tuesday, the SA Weather Service and other social media pages shared photos showing snowfall in the Western Cape.
Several images show the landscapes covered in a blanket of white snow - which explains the cold many other regions have been experiencing.
The SA Weather Service issued a cold warning early on Tuesday morning. The post read:
"Morning satellite image (26 May 2020). Cold front moves east resulting in cold to very cold temperatures across the southern and central parts of SA. Showers will continue along the south coast of Western and Eastern Cape provinces with snow on the mountains. Stay warm."
The SA Weather Service posted snaps of snow in Klaarstroom area, located at the northern side of the Swartberg mountain in the Western Cape.
In another image posted by the SA Weather Service, snow can be seen covering the Matroosberg area as well.
Storm Report SA posted a video of light snowfall over Rogge Cloof Sutherland Echo Village.
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za reported the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) has been converted into a new emergency field hospital.
The hospital will hold 862 beds, which is about the size of other large hospitals in the region. Western Cape Premier Alan Winde took to social media to share photos and updates on the development.
His post on Twitter was captioned:
"I’ve come to personally see the progress of the CTICC temporary hospital that will have 862 beds for Covid-19 patients."
