THE weather is expected to be cold, windy and cloudy until Saturday, while light rain is expected across the country from today (Wednesday) evening, the Meteorological Services Department (MSD) has said.
In a weather forecast and update notice, the MSD said most maximum daytime temperatures will be in the teens with some hail in localised places.
The MSD said the clouds are expected to clear, with temperatures getting warmer from Sunday.
“A low pressure system in the rain-including levels of the atmosphere, meteorologically referred to as Cut-Off Low, is developing over Zimbabwe. It is expected to draw in and circulate moisture within its proximity. This should be coupled with relatively cold south-easterly winds from the south-east coast of Southern Africa.
“Generally, light rain is expected across the country from Wednesday, June 29 evening. It should be cold, windy and cloudy until Saturday, July 2 with most maximum daytime temperatures in the teens. Small pellets of hail (frozen raindrops) are a distinct probability in localised places. From Sunday, July 3, the clouds should start breaking and it should become warmer during the day,” said the MSD.
The MSD encouraged people to keep warm and ensure that the elderly, young and ill are kept warm.
“Where braziers are used, ensure the room is well ventilated,” added the MSD.
