Rain expected on Wednesday and Thursday

Staff Reporter

THIS week’s hot weather is predicted to continue in most parts of the country, but it will most likely come with a few thundershowers in some areas in the southern, central, eastern, coastal and, eventually, north-eastern parts of the country.

This is according to Namibia Meteorological Services’ weather predictions, which indicate that the interior of the country will likely experience partly cloudy and hot conditions, while the coast will experience partly cloudy and cool to mild conditions on Wednesday.

Walvis Bay was highlighted as one of the coastal towns that will receive rain on Wednesday. This will come with a minimum temperature of 8⁰C and a maximum temperature of 20⁰C.

The other coastal towns – namely Swakopmund, !Nami#nus and Henties Bay – are expected to record minimum temperatures ranging between 10⁰C and 12⁰C and maximum temperatures ranging between 18⁰C and 22⁰C.

Windhoek was also identified as one of the central areas that will receive rain, not only on Wednesday, but also on Thursday. This is predicted to come with minimum temperatures of 12⁰C and maximum temperatures ranging between 27⁰C and 29⁰C.

In the South, Keetmanshoop is also expected to receive rain on Wednesday and Thursday, which will be accompanied with minimum temperatures ranging between 12⁰C and 14⁰C and maximum temperatures of 29⁰C.

Other southern towns such as Aranos, Mariental and Aus are expected to record minimum temperatures of 15⁰C, 13⁰C and 13⁰C respectively, with maximum temperatures of 31⁰C, 29⁰C and 26⁰C respectively on Wednesday.

However, the highest temperatures are once again expected in the North, where many places in the Kunene Region are expected to record maximum temperatures ranging between 32⁰C and 33⁰C on Wednesday. This includes Sesfontein and Khorixas, which are expected to record minimum temperatures ranging between 14⁰C and 15⁰C.

The rest of the North is also not spared from these high temperatures. In fact, Oshakati, in the Oshana Region, Ondangwa, in the Oshikoto Region, and Okahao, in the Omusati Region, are all expected to record minimum temperatures ranging between 13⁰C and 14⁰C and maximum temperatures ranging between 32⁰C and 33⁰C on Wednesday.

The North-east, where rain is expected in certain areas on Thursday, will also see such high temperatures on Wednesday. For example, Katima Mulilo, Rundu and Nkurenkuru will likely record minimum temperatures of 12⁰C, 14⁰C and 12⁰C respectively, with maximum temperatures of 33⁰C, 33⁰C and 32⁰C respectively.
