There is currently some snow forecast for Thursday night/Friday morning. At this stage only parts of central Lesotho and the Northern Berg escarpment will be affected. Falls are expected to be very light, with the exception of possibly the Afriski region where up to 9cm is possible.

Afriski reported hard snowfall at 13h00 today on their Facebook page.

Take nothing but litter, leave nothing but a cleaner Drakensberg.

There are forecasts for about 2 weeks, but they are really unreliable. For example this current light snowfall was forecast to be about 60cm of snow. I wouldn't trust forecasts more than 4 or 5 days out
