The Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NiMet) has predicted partly cloudy to cloudy weather conditions over the central States of the country on Sunday with thunderstorms over Mambilla Plateau in the afternoon and evening period.
NiMet’s Weather Outlook by its Central Forecast Office in Abuja on Saturday also predicted day and night temperatures in the range of 33 to 39 and 19 to 27 degrees Celsius respectively.
The agency predicted that the Southern states would experience cloudy morning over the inland and coastal cities with chances of localised rains over Port Harcourt, Calabar, Yenagoa and Warri with day and night temperatures of 30 to 36 and 21 to 26 degrees Celsius respectively.
It also predicted localised thunderstorms over Ibadan, Ado-Ekiti, Akure, Ijebu-ode, Ikeja, Benin, Awka, Enugu, Uyo, Calabar, Warri, Eket, Yenegoa and Port Harcourt in the afternoon and evening hours.
According to NiMet, Northern states will experience partly cloudy to sunny conditions throughout the forecast period with day and night temperatures in the ranges of 38 to 42 and 20 to 29 degrees Celsius respectively.
“There is increase in atmospheric instability; hence more cloud developments are expected with the chances of thunderstorms over some cities in the inland and coast of the south within the next 24 hours,” NiMet predicted. (NAN)
