Freezing conditions on the highveld see icy rain making road driving potentially dangerous.

The South African Weather Service has warned of icy rain and small hail in Gauteng, the North-West and the northern Freestate.

The colder than normal conditions have been making the public holiday one to stay at home.

A video posted on social media this morning showed what appeared to be a car sliding in icy conditions in the East Rand area.

Another video showed icy rain falling in Coligny in the North-West early this morning.

The freezing conditions are expected to continue throughout the day.
