Snow Advisory

The Automobile Association has been informed by the weather service of snowfalls in the Eastern Cape, Western Cape, Lesotho and KwaZulu Natal.

There are several road closures in the Western and Eastern Cape and sleet has been reported on the N3 between Mooi River and Nottingham Road.

Drivers are urged to exercise extreme caution when traveling on roads covered by snow as ice often forms below the snow on the road surface.

Travelers to the Drakensburg in the Eastern Cape are requested to check with their point of destination regarding accessibility by road.

Motorists are urged to ensure their vehicle has sufficient fuel and that a blanket or two is carried in the vehicle in case of getting stuck at the roadside.
