The Meteorological Services Department (MSD) announced that the country will experience heavy rainfall starting today. MSD official James Ngoma said precipitation is moving from South Africa and Botswana entering the country via Masvingo and Matabeleland where the rains are expected to start falling today before spreading to Mashonaland Provinces.
Localized heavier rainfall in access of 50 mm in 24 hours cannot be ruled out, so we advise the people to keep indoors when the rains start to fall, he stated.
Ngoma added that more rainfall is expected from the Zambian side entering the country through the southern parts of the side starting from next week.
More rainfall is expected to start next week, this will prolong a bit especially in Mashonaland Provinces and this should be good for farmers.
