GENERAL WIND FLOW: Gusty in Stormy Areas Easterly Winds
As from Sunday 23 February to Sunday 1st March, 2020 there will be a wave of widespread thunderstorms passing through the country starting from the south and eventually moving to the centre and eventually northern areas caused by the Inter Tropical Convergence Zone as it crosses the country, leaving the south with meager and reduced rainfall activities. This will result in most areas in the south to experience erratic and isolated thunderstorms interspaced with dry weather conditions particularly over the extreme south, while thunderstorm rainfall activities inter-spaced with heaviest episodes will be over the north and central areas of the country during most days of the week.
Locally heavy downpours which could result in swelling of rivers due siltation is likely to trigger floods particularly over northern lakeshore areas. The general public is advised to avoid crossing swelling rivers.
