More cold weather and rain for large parts of the country is expected, but more snow is not likely. ‘Weather models are suggesting rainfall from tomorrow over the North West, Gauteng and Eastern Free State. A mixture of freezing rain and rain is expected in the area indicated on the map early on Tuesday morning with a very slight chance of snow flurries at higher altitudes. We do not expect any snow to settle over Gauteng or the North West,’ Storm Report SA posted.
