Notorious for its wet winters, the Mother City isn’t any less beautiful in the colder months. We’ve collated a series of photographs of winter weather in Cape Town and its surrounds dating from before 2000 to June 2015!

Travelers to the Mother City, who have visited other parts of South Africa during winter, are almost always surprised by the torrential weather in Cape Town. Much of South Africa has more icy, frozen-ground-in-the-morning, and snowy, winters while the Cape has gushing gutters, spontaneous waterfalls on the mountain, and rough seas.

Many seaside restaurants in Cape Town get a bit nervous during the stormy season because sea levels rise – which often results in waitrons (and patrons) needing gumboots. Restaurants in Cape Town that boast gorgeous views of the sea, just an open window away from those looking for a drink or some grub, often have the problem of smashed windows, and flooding, during the winter months.

Nevertheless, a little water is the last thing that will stop Capetonians visiting their favourite spots – and visitors are encouraged to follow suit.

While the temperatures in the Mother City don’t drop quite as low as the rest of South Africa, eateries starting up their heaters and fireplaces is very common from May to August (and sometimes even into September).

Snow in Cape Town isn’t all that common – but every Capetonian remembers the winter in 2013 that brought a barrage of hail that had the city looking like it had been covered in fresh snow. A sprinkling of snow is relatively common on the highest peaks of Table Mountain, but Cape Town’s surrounds definitely make up for the Mother City’s not-so-white Christmas in July.

Perhaps one of the most beautiful views in Cape Town is that of a storm or cold front rolling in over the mountain. Much like a Capetonian’s ability to get their bearings via the nearest mountain, you’ll begin to trust the Mother City natives’ uncanny forecasts when they see the clouds start looming.
