Tropical Cyclone Freddy has weakened into a low-pressure zone in southern parts of Mozambique, the Meteorological Services Department (MSD) has said.
In its latest weather update issued at 4 PM on Saturday, 25 February 2023, in conjunction with the Department of Civil Protection (DCP), the MSD said by Saturday afternoon, Tropical Cyclone Freddy had become a low-pressure zone. It said:
Its prolonged stay on land (off the southeast coast of Mozambique) depleted its energy, which caused a substantial weakening.
Prior to now, Zimbabwe was never touched. Because of its location, the country as a whole has enjoyed mostly sunny conditions.
The Met Department has forecasted cloudy, rainy, and mild weather conditions in Mashonaland East, Manicaland, Masvingo, southern parts of Midlands, and Matabeleland Provinces tomorrow, Sunday, 26 February 2023.
There is also a possibility of isolated heavy falls with some rumbling.
The rest of the country is expected to experience mostly sunny and warm weather.
In the outlook period, that is, on Monday, 27 February 2023, the eastern and southern provinces (Mashonaland East, Manicaland, Masvingo, and southern parts of Midlands) are anticipated to be mostly cloudy, rainy, and mild during most parts of the day.
MSD said that it should be windy in Matabeleland South, Masvingo, and Manicaland Provinces, while the remaining provinces should be mostly sunny and warm.
