Speaking to The Herald, Meteorological Services Department (MSD) explained the current cold temperatures, saying its because the country is in a transition from summer to winter.
An intense High Pressure System, which moved from the Atlantic Ocean, progressing eastwards towards the Indian Ocean, is currently influencing the weather over Zimbabwe. The system started affecting us on Wednesday until today (Friday) (last week) and it is in the Indian Ocean moving further east. This is a normal feature as we are transitioning from summer season to winter.
MSD said the rainfall season had officially ended.
