September, spring and snow!

Shepherds, herdsmen and livestock owners in the mountainous north-east of Lesotho are scrambling to bring their animals to lower altitudes in anticipation of heavy snowfalls on Saturday and early Sunday morning (Sept 7&8). According to Daniel at Polihali Lodge and Pony Trek Adventures overlooking Molumong village, Radio Lesotho has been broadcasting warnings about expected snow falls. The authoritative Snow Report said by sunrise on Sunday, heavy snowfalls are expected over the eastern parts of the Maluti mountains in the north of Lesotho and over eastern Lesotho and the entire KZN Drakensberg,

The cold weather is due to frontal system moving from the west to the east, and its impact may be already felt by tomorrow (Friday, Sept 7) in Lesotho.
