The Meteorological Services Department wishes to advise the public of very hot weather to be expected on Tuesday 17 October 2017. These near record-breaking high temperatures will be experienced throughout the whole country, with the low lying areas such as the Zambezi and Limpopo valleys forecast to go as high as 43°C.
On Wednesday, 18 October 2017, Matabeleland North, all Mashonaland Provinces, north of the Midlands and Harare Provinces should continue experiencing this hot weather. Matabeleland South, south of the Midlands, Manicaland and Masvingo Provinces should expect a decline in daytime temperatures due to the cloud cover anticipated to infiltrate the country from South Africa.
The Department strongly advises against extended exposure to direct sunlight. As such, the usual health related protection measures should be maximized.
