Accra, June 14, GNA - Moderate rainfall is expected tonight in parts of the coastal, middle and northern sectors of the country.
The public is thus advised to take all measures to avoid any inconveniences during the downpour.
Mr Michael Padi, senior meteorologist at the Ghana Meteorological Agency, told the Ghana News Agency in an interview, that although there had been some relaxation in rainfall during the past week along the coast, the rainy season was not yet over.
"We expect more rainstorms in the country right up to the month of July, when they would begin to thin out," he said.
The season would however continue in Northern Ghana till the month of October, the senior meteorologist added.
Mr. Padi said as the rainy season continued, rains within the inland parts of the country were expected to be accompanied by strong winds, with those occurring along the coast typically having mild winds.
He stressed that whilst occasional relaxations or breaks were expected during the rainy season, which would make it seem the rains had stopped, this year's major rainy season would begin its halt in July for the Southern part of the country, and October for Northern Ghana.
The country is currently experiencing its first and major rainy season of the year.
He urged the citizenry to take weather warnings seriously, in order to escape avoidable inconveniences and dangers that heavy rains pose to motorists such as flooding and poor visibility among others.
The current rainy season has recorded severe flooding in some places, as well as a number of flood related deaths, and loss of property.
