The Southern African Development Community (SADC) Climate Services Centre has predicted that heavy rains, including flooding, is expected between 31 December 2019 and 6 January 2020 in almost all the SADC nations, except for Zimbabwe.
Zimbabwe is at risk of another drought, which would make it twice in as many years that Zimbabwe has had very depressed rainfalls.
Except for Hwange, where light rains are expected in the next seven days, much of Zimbabwe will be dry, says SADC weather centre. The United Nations this week said it expects Zimbabwe to face anther drought.
Much of southern Mozambique is also not expected to receive rainfalls.
