Western Cape residents have flooded social media timelines with images and videos of the snowfall which hit the province at the weekend.

Mountain peaks, roads, and trees in parts of the Western Cape were covered with a light dusting of snow on Sunday. 

It was expected, as the SA Weather Service forecast heavy rain and snow, but it is unusual for August.

A cold front swept over the province bringing the snowfall, hail, and heavy rain.
