Harare To Experience Extremely Cold Weather

Harare will experience extreme cold weather conditions starting from today up to Sunday, the Meteorological Services Department (MSD) has said.

According to MSD the low temperatures are expected to reach a minimum of seven degrees Celsius today.

In a statement, MSD said the cold weather is expected to become even more severe in the coming three weeks with Bulawayo, Matabeleland South, Masvingo and parts of Manicaland provinces expected to experience severe cold weather conditions.

“Harare and Bulawayo Metropolitan, parts of Midlands, Mashonaland East, Matabeleland South, Masvingo and Manicaland provinces – it should be cold at first, with clear skies and chances of ground frost in frost-prone areas.

“Windy, mild and cloudy conditions are expected later in the day with light rain and drizzle in places.

“On the other hand, mostly sunny but mild day-time conditions are anticipated in Matabeleland North, northern districts of Midlands, Mashonaland West and Central, becoming cool towards the evening,” reads the statement.

Meanwhile, Principal Meteorologist, James Ngoma, said people must keep warm, as temperatures will be cold, windy and cloudy until Saturday.

“We are expecting more clouds to filter in from Wednesday into the weekend.

“We are expecting a bit of cold conditions from much of the southern parts of the country.

“We advise people to keep warm during this period.

“We are expecting most of the temperatures to be below 20 degrees for areas such as Matabeleland South into Masvingo, as well as parts of Manicaland province.

“Most of those areas should have temperatures in the teens (between 13 and 19 degrees Celsius),” he said.

The winter season is the day with the shortest period of daylight and the longest night of the year.
