Met Dept Predicts Wet Weekend

Share This

Own Correspondent| The Meteorological Services Department has said rains were expected to continue during the weekend in Mashonaland Provinces, Harare, Midlands, and northern parts of Manicaland.

The wet weather conditions that have been ongoing since early this week have also resulted in slight improvement in dam water levels with the Zimbabwe National Water Authority providing an update on the current dam levels.

Zimbabwe National Water Authority (Zinwa) corporate communications manager Mrs Marjorie Munyonga said dam levels were rising.

“As at February 13, 2020, the national dam level average had risen to 50,4 percent up from 49,6 percent on February 6, 2020,” she said.

“The national dam level average, however, remains way below the 69 percent normally recorded during this time of the year. The dam levels are set to continue improving as more inflows are expected into the dams in the coming few days.”

Significant increases were recorded in dams in Masvingo Province, followed by dams in Matabeleland South and Matabeleland North.

“Tugwi-Mukosi, the country’s largest inland water body gained 2,3 percent, while Mutirikwi, the second largest water body, recorded a 1,6 percent increase in water levels,” said Mrs Munyonga.

“Significant increases in water flows have also been noted in the major rivers of Odzi, Pungwe, Musengezi, Runde, Save, Limpopo and the Zambezi.”
