The rains are coming soon – Meteo Officer

By myjoyonline
Mr Amos Narh, Deputy Officer in-Charge, Meteorological Services Department-Kotoka International Airport is asking farmers to prepare their lands for the rainy season which is about a month away.

They should however not be misled by recent rain falls experienced in parts of the country since they were not the dawn of the actual rainy season. He described the rains as a "false start" but said the actual rainy season could be expected in April.

Mr Amos Narh told the Ghana News Agency that an improvement in the weather during the dry season could cause some rainfall.

The expected rains cannot be a blessing for only Ghanaian farmers though, for the entire nation is anxiously awaiting the downpour, as has been done yearly, and in this case to especially refill the Akosombo Lake where dwindling water levels is forcing the hydro power generation plant to an imminent shut down.
