Heavy Rains starting today expected to Relieve Malawi’s Heatwave

The Ministry of Natural Resources’ Department of Climate Change and Meteorological Services has issued a weather forecast for Malawi. It anticipates windy and cloudy conditions with rain and thunderstorms beginning at midnight in the southern region and extending to the central and northern areas. This weather pattern is attributed to high-pressure systems causing the convergence of south easterly and easterly air masses over Malawi. These conditions are expected to alleviate the ongoing October heatwave in Malawi.

Additionally, the Department advises the public to take precautions to avoid lightning strikes. People are urged to seek shelter in enclosed structures and refrain from being in open areas or seeking refuge beneath trees during thunderstorms.
