Cloudy and cold conditions which affected much of the country yesterday into today resulted in light showers at Belvedere in Harare.

TOMORROW FRIDAY 16 JULY 2021
It should be cloudy and cold with morning drizzle in Matabeleland South, Bulawayo Metropolitan Province, Masvingo, southern areas of Midlands, southern parts of Mashonaland East and Manicaland, becoming less cloudy and cool by afternoon. Mostly sunny and mild conditions are expected in Matabeleland North and northern parts of Midlands though cold in the morning. Elsewhere (Harare Metropolitan Province, Mashonaland Central and West as well as northern parts of Mashonaland East), it is expected to be cloudy with sunny breaks. It will be cold in the morning, becoming cool by the afternoon.
• Low temperatures, especially in the early hours of the morning have negative impacts on poultry.
• Cold conditions overnight negatively impact vulnerable persons (e.g. the very young, elderly or ill), with abrupt fall in temperatures increasing the risk of respiratory illnesses such as coughs and colds as well as asthma attacks.
NB: sharp changes in daytime conditions are projected later this week.
ACTIONS TO TAKE
• Closely monitor the temperatures within fowl-runs and adjust accordingly.
• Keep warm by wearing appropriate winter attire, where possible stay indoors.
• Ensure that vulnerable members of society are kept warm, especially overnight. Avoid brazier or open fire to keep warm, in an unventilated room to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning.
• Always consult a local certified health practitioner for better advice on respiratory problems (e.g. dry coughs, colds and flu or asthma).
• COVID is still a potential threat, stay safe, mask up, get vaccinated.
