Snow falls in South Africa

Snow in Johannesburg, South Africa, 07 August 2012 (

Snow fell in Johannesburg, South Africa yesterday for the first time in five years (since June 2007).

Forecasters say while snow does not fall every year in Johannesburg, it does fall at least once every few years.

The ground was also whitened in South Africa’s capital Pretoria after a storm brought cold air from Antarctica.

Residents were out in full force with cameras and mobile phones capturing images of the rare snowfall.
