Snow Watch 2017

This is the official thread for Snow Watch 2017. Feel free to post pictures, information, questions and reports about the snow conditions in the Drakensberg for 2017. The idea is to keep track of the snowfalls, pool information about where the snow is for those that want to go see it, and simply to have a place to express the joy and experiences you may have had if you have witnessed the grandeur of the Dragon clothed in white.

Hey folks. Snowreport.co.za is forecasting some light snow over the weekend in the Central and Northern Berg, but none of the other weather services is. Could someone with decent meteorological knowledge please give an opinion on this? I'm quite keen to go but not kitted out for snow.

Hi Dave, earlier on in the week there did seem to be a small chance of some light snow on the very highest peaks this weekend, but this chance seems to have faded away with the latest forecasts.

It is however likely to turn quite cold on the escarpment from Saturday with temperatures dropping below freezing at night.
