FORECAST FOR TOMORROW MONDAY 20 SEPTEMBER 2021.
Mostly sunny and hazy with warm to hot afternoon conditions are anticipated to dominate the whole country.

- While land preparations are very vital at this stage, those engaged in such on-farm and other outdoor activities are reminded that it is illegal to start veldt fires
ACTIONS TO TAKE
- All farmers (urban and rural) are urged to reduce the amount of grass on their farms and residential properties through hay baling, thatch, and broom grass harvesting as a fire prevention measure.
- The public is urged to safeguard against the spreading of wildfires by constructing fireguards that are maintained free from combustible matter and are at least 9 (nine) meters wide.
- Put out any fires found in open veldts and along road-sides. Do not leave any fire unattended.

WEATHER FORECAST TUESDAY 20 SEPTEMBER 2021
It should start off with clear skies and light winds; however, as the day progresses, a cool and freshening south-easterly airflow should start to be felt in the southern provinces of the country such as Matabeleland South, Masvingo and Manicaland provinces due to the rise in pressure over southeastern coast of the subcontinent.
