A cold front brought almost to the territory of the South African state of another batch of low temperatures, snow and harsh winds. During the day, almost the whole country has become a snowy kingdom.

Because of precipitation several roads and border posts, a mountain pass temporarily not functioning. On some freeways in Johannesburg ice. So far, the snow has not conceived serious consequences for the inhabitants of the South African Republic. The opposite, we are glad to such a change of weather, because, according to the calculations of meteorologists in the last 103 years of snow in the winter was going to Johannesburg only 22 days. Last big snowfall was recorded in June 2007. In the capital, Pretoria current snow was the first since 1968.
