‘Malawi currently experiencing windy conditions’

Written by  Charles Mphwere

Blantyre August 8, 2017: Department of climate change and meteorological services (DCCMS) says most parts of the country would be experiencing windy conditions from Sunday, August 6 to August 10, 2017.

The windy conditions will be followed by a likelihood of chilly weather conditions associated with patchy rain drizzle particularly over higher grounds.

DCCMS said this in a statement released on August 6 and signed by its director Jolamu Nkhokwe.

The statement said the conditions will be influenced by an incursion of cold and moist southeasterly winds airflow pumped from the high pressure system over the south east coast of the Republic of South Africa.

“The conditions will be associated with an outburst of Mwera winds over the lake as well as patches of rain and drizzles in the northern lakeshore areas,” reads the statement.    

It further indicated that the Southern and Central regions would likely experience partly cloudy but hazy weather conditions during the day and very cold at night with few showers over the northern lakeshore areas due to dominance of easterly airflow over the country from  August 11 to August 13 2017.

The statement added that there has been a decline in the frequency of passage of huge high atmospheric pressure areas moving from the Atlantic Ocean into the Indian Ocean through the south east coast of the Republic of South Africa in the month of August.

Malawi is currently experiencing winter weather season that started in May 2017.
