Sandstorm envelopes coastal towns

Sandstorm envelopes coastal towns

MOTORISTS travelling between the main coastal towns had to exercise extra caution because of poor visibility brought on by swirling dust clouds blown up by a strong east wind.
According to Odillo Kgobetsi, chief weather forecaster at the Namibia Meteorological Service, the east wind conditions will start to dissipate by Thursday morning but those coastal residents can expect temperatures as high as 38 degrees Celsius in the meantime.
“Another cold front is about to move over the southern tip of Africa which would cause the east wind conditions to dissipate by Thursday morning. Warm east wind conditions are more prevalent during winter time at the coast because of the recurrence of high pressure system that forms over parts of Namibia and Botswana.”
Kgobetsi said that Namibians in the interior of the country can expect mild to warm conditions but he indicated hat the weather might turn a bit colder by Thursday.
