Malawi to get normal rains from Friday

75

The Department of Climate Change and Meteorological Services in the country has assured citizens of normal rains from Friday, January 8.

According to the meteorological department, the weather phenomenon known as El Niño is expected to wreak havoc in southern Africa including Malawi and it will cause dry spells.

The weather has seen famers in the country planting for more than three times due to shortage of rainfall in some districts of the country.

Rains Malawi

Malawi will have normal rains.

During a Malawi24 tour to Machinga district, some farmers from Halala, Nsanama, Ntaja, Chikweo, Namandanje and NKasaulo areas said they have not yet planted crops in their gardens due to dry spells.

In Nsanje district, agriculture authorities have also requested government to provide them maize seeds arguing that farmers have planted for more than two times without success.

However, Principal Meteorologist and Head of Public Weather Service Elina Kululanga said the country is expected to have normal rains from this week.

“We are seeing some clouds so we are expecting rains from Friday because of a new system that we have,” said Kululanga.

El Niño which can be translated as “The Kid” or “The Boy” has already created havoc around the world.

With El Niño, warming ocean temperatures of Pacific have injected climate challenges in the world. Droughts are expected to occur in some parts of the globe, leading to energy and water insecurity.

  4. Am some where in Africa, i see clouds everyday but it never rains. So ur assumption that there will be rains bcoz u see clouds doesnt give hope. What if they are not rain clouds. The rain clouds [nimbostratus] are somewhere resting and will come when time is ripe.
