Record cold in South Africa

Empirical evidence just continues to mount. Har-har, hardy-har-har. It's cold...not WARM!

News - Environment: Surprise spring snowfalls blanket KZN:

Parts of KwaZulu-Natal were transformed into a "winter wonderland" after snowfalls blanketed several areas of the province.

Temperatures plummeted into the low teens, with residents of Kokstad and Giants Castle waking up to 0C.

Durban experienced its coldest September night in recorded history on Friday night.

Snowfalls were reported in Kokstad, Matatiele, Underberg, Mooi River, Bulwer, Himeville and Nottingham Road.

Several roads in the province were closed and people were advised not to go snow hunting, as they risked becoming stuck in traffic and not being able to keep themselves warm.

The road between Harding and Kokstad was closed for most of yesterday, but has since been reopened.
