The National Centre of Meteorology (NCM) has indicated that the country is expected to witness new weather fluctuations because of an air depression extending from the east, with chances of rain falling on some areas, especially the eastern and southern parts, from Sunday until Wednesday, August 17, 2022.
The NCM appealed to the public to be careful and exercise caution while driving during the rain, as well as when the horizontal visibility is not clear, due to rain and winds that raise dust and dirt. It also advised to stay away from places of water gathering and the surface run-offs.
The NCM also said that the weather from Tuesday until Thursday is expected to be hot and fair to partly cloudy at times, with clouds towering over the eastern areas by the afternoon. The winds will be light to moderate southeasterly to northeasterly winds, freshening at times causing blowing dust, with a speed of 15 – 25 reaching 40 km/hr.
