Malawi chilly weather to continue for a week, says weather expert

Malawi’s biting chilly weather will continue for a week, a weather expert has warned as the country is experiencing very cold weather.

Nkhokwe: most areas across the country were likely to continue experiencing widespread rains

Director of Meteorological and Climate Change department Jolam Nkhokwe says the cold weather is ad a result if high air pressure passing from South Africa to Malawi.

“We are in winter so we should be facing the chilly weather because the sun is in the northern hemisphere. We have the high air pressure system  in the south easterly of South Africa pumping into the southern Africa including Malawi, that is we have the rain drizzles,” said Nkhokwe.

He said the chilly weather will go away over the weekend.

Nkhokwe said there are also strong  winds which translates into Mwera winds, saying the Mwera winds can be so strong that they can damage canoes.

He therefore warned fishermen to be away from the lake as the Mwera winds can be very dangerous to their lives.

I expected this man to explain further than he has done. Most of us did Geography in standard eight. When the sun is in the northern hemisphere such chilly weather conditions are expected. By 23rd September, the earth movement on the axis should be coming back to the equator.
However, this in itself does not fully capture why this year it is very chilly because the same process repeats itself each year. It may indeed be a sign of global warming and changing weather patterns. In other-words, science can not explain everything on the cosmos.
