Snow in mid-November?

According to Snow Report, it is believed that snow will fall late Tuesday night (November 14) over the high ranges in the eastern parts of the Western Cape and in the Sneeuberge of the Eastern Cape.

By early afternoon on Wednesday, we should see substantial snowfalls over the Eastern Cape Drakensberg and surrounds, and by Wednesday evening, snowfalls in the Eastern Cape Drakensberg areas should extend to include some of the lower-lying towns.
At the same time, snowfalls will commence throughout most of Lesotho, and into some high-lying areas around Kokstad and Matatielle, with light falls possible to come down into KZN around Underberg and Himeville, and possibly even towards Bulwer by Thursday morning.

The Harrismith/Van Reenen area might also get some snow, but this is just a possibility at this stage.
By Thursday evening, most snowfalls should cease as the moisture is pushed out to sea.
Thabana Ntlenyana in the east of Lesotho is forecast to get nearly 1m of snow on the peak. At the top of Sani Pass, nearly 50cm is possible, with most snow expected to fall during Wednesday night.
Lots of rain and wind is also expected with this weather system, which could become intense at times.
