THE Zambia Meteorological Department has warned that Lusaka, Central, Western and Southern provinces will experience heavy rains coupled with flash floods from today to Wednesday.

The department also forecast that during the same period the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) which was the main rain bringing system would be oscillating about the southern borders of Zambia thereby increasing rainfall and showery activities across the country.

The department stated Tuesday and Wednesday the ITCZ would be oscillating about the Central part of Zambia.
As a result, Lusaka, Southern and southern districts of Eastern Provinces would experience a reduction in the morning and night rainfall.

The department indicated that all areas would be mainly cloudy with morning rain in places, afternoon showers and thunderstorms in many places as well as night rain and thunder in places.

The department also stated that Lusaka, Southern and southern districts of Eastern Province would on Tuesday and Wednesday partly cloudy to cloudy, windy at times with afternoon shower in places.

    • Just watch how PF Zesco will continue with powercuts under new explanations. There will be new “globo” explanations of why Zesco is so useless even with a full Kariba Dam.

    • @Buck Teeth Lungu you are right. Actually the drought was just opportunistic considering what sheeple we have in our majority population. The issue is the maintenance of the Kariba Dam walls. Period. In fact the next excuse will be that the power station got flooded and equipment got destroyed – hence load shedding continues. Meanwhile donations will continue pouring in for feeding the vulnerable from self-interest donors and countries. What a nation we have! Disgusting leadership! Horrible!

    • You must be staying in an area where a by-election is looming (Munali and Lusaka Central). Elsewhere there are consistent 4 hour powercuts without explanation.

  3. Dig dams and trap this water ? you I’diots! That’s what they do in other countries where people have heads that contains brains, not the masalamusi that characterizes Zambian heads like Kambwili who suggested Zambians should each take a turn to piss in the Kariba to raise the water levels. Koma some alpha silverback baboons, they are mad in the head sure.
