Windy and hot conditions expected to persist at coast

Staff Reporter

ALTHOUGH June was one of the most memorable months in terms of weather, it was also one of the most destructive, especially for residents of the coast who suffered property damage due to heavy east winds.

Unfortunately, according to Namibia Meteorological Services, the strong east winds and occasional sandstorms will most likely persist over the Namib and coastal areas on Friday. It was also predicted that these conditions will come with very hot temperatures.

Swakopmund is expected to record a minimum temperature of 20⁰C and a maximum of 30⁰C, and Walvis Bay a minimum and maximum temperature of 20⁰C and 31⁰C respectively.

Although the coast is expected to be very hot on Friday, the southern coast was exempted from this prediction. According to Namibia Meteorological Services, the southern coast will most likely be partly cloudy and warm on Friday, with !Nami#nus expected to record a minimum temperature of 12⁰C and a maximum temperature of 26⁰C.

For the interior, Namibia Meteorological Services predicted that a fresh and strong north-easterly wind will also persist on Friday – and this will most likely come with partly cloudy and mild to warm conditions. Windhoek, for example, is expected to record a minimum temperature of 6⁰C and a maximum temperature of 19⁰C.

It was also predicted that the northern parts of the country will be hot on Friday, with Ondangwa expected to record minimum and maximum temperatures of 7⁰C and 27⁰C.

In contrast to the rest of the predictions, the Zambezi region is expected to receive a few rain showers on Friday. This is perhaps not surprising for residents in the northeast, as Katima Mulilo and Bagani already received rain, recording 6,4mm and 0,6mm of rainfall respectively by Thursday morning, according to Namibia Meteorological Services.
