The Meteorological Services Department of Zimbabwe has released a weather report and forecast for the period 13 – 15 July 2022. Pindula News presents the report and forecast below:

PREAMBLE

ZIMBABWE EVENING WEATHER REPORT AND FORECAST ISSUED AT 1600 HRS ON WEDNESDAY 13 JULY 2022 VALID UNTIL FRIDAY 15 JULY 2022.

There was light rain over parts of the Eastern Highlands this morning, with the highest rainfall amount being 14 mm at Mukandi. It was cloudy over much of the country with sunny breaks by mid-morning making today slightly wanner than yesterday. Meanwhile, south-easterly winds (transmuting from dry to moist) are slowly being driven into the country through the majestic Gonarezhou National Park, in the south-eastern parts of the country.

FORECASTS FOR TOMORROW, THURSDAY 14 JULY 2022

It should be generally cloudy in all areas of Zimbabwe, with short interludes of sunshine, especially over provinces in the southern part of the country, namely Masvingo, Matabeleland South and southern parts of Manicaland. However, it should be cool in all places by afternoon as even the sunny periods will be coupled with the cool winds (being the actual causatives, driving away the clouds). It is anticipated to get cold towards evening with light rain in parts of the Eastern Highlands.

IMPACTS

• Cold conditions may affect the body’s health, with common colds, influenza, and fever, as well as asthma, being common.

• Poultry producers should note that broilers are sensitive to temperature variations

• Low-level cloud/Fog may occur in parts of the Eastern Highlands and this tends to reduce visibility

• Rain and drizzle may affect your outdoor activities, please plan with the weather in mind.

• Rain forms a thin slippery layer on road surfaces which reduces grip and traction.

ACTIONS TO TAKE

• Dress appropriately to keep warm especially overnight, and ensure vulnerable members of society are wain as well. When braziers are in use, please ensure the room is well ventilated.

• An umbrella or raincoat may be essential if one needs to be outside for prolonged periods.

• Poultry producers should check temperature levels regularly and adjustments made to reduce bird mortality and increase productivity.

• Field crops that may be affected by rain need to be stored in a dry place.

• Drive cautiously, especially when visibility has been diminished by fog or cloud-induced darkness.

• Roads may be slippery due to the rainfall, please drive carefully and do not overspeed.
