The Meteorological Department has warned scattered violent thunderstorms that may be accompanied by lightning and strong winds in some parts of the country today.
In a statement the Meteorological Services Department said:
Advection of moisture from Botswana and Zambia resulted in thunderstorms across much of the country with light morning rain showers. Notable falls were, however, 19mm and 11mm measured in Mount Darwin and Masvingo respectively.
Consequently tomorrow, Friday December 15 with increased advection of moisture into the country through both Matabeleland provinces and all Mashonaland provinces should see increased cloud cover over these areas into the interior of the country.
This coupled with the sporadic sunny breaks, will lead to countrywide thunderstorms and light rain, with heavy downpours especially over high ground.
