Met warns of thunderstorms

The Department of Climate Change and Meteorological Services says most areas across the country will likely receive scattered thunderstorms in the next six days.

The Director in the department Jolamu Nkhokwe told Yoneco Fm that the scattered thunderstorms will be across the southern and central regions while the Northern areas will receive isolated thunderstorms.

“This weather is being influenced by the passage of convergence of airflows from the South East and the North East,” he said.
