TMA’s previous weather forecast 98 pc accurate

DAR ES SALAAM: THE Tanzania Meteorological Authority (TMA) stated yesterday that its previous weather forecast for the months of October to December last year was 98 per cent accurate.

The TMA revealed this yesterday in Dar es Salaam during a media workshop ahead of today’s issuance of the weather forecast for Masika rainfall season.

In the previous report, the authority projected that the Vuli rainy season would be influenced by El Niño conditions from October to December 2023.

This means that most parts of the country received normal to above-normal rains during this season. Many parts of the country experienced impacts of the heavy rains, including damage to transport infrastructures due to floods which also destroyed properties and rendered people homeless.

The TMA also predicted that the Vuli rainy season would feature warmer than usual temperatures in bimodal areas, especially the northern coast and north-eastern highlands.

The authority informed the public about the trend of hot conditions countrywide. It had noted that the current hot condition was a result of overhead sun in line with reduced rains in various parts.

Normally, the period of overhead sun in the country reaches its climax at the end of November, and the same situation occurs during the month of February.

Speaking yesterday in Dar es Salaam, TMA’s Acting Director General, Dr Ladislaus Chang’a, said the authority has continued issuing weather reports for various seasons along with advisories in order to help stakeholders and citizens to take precautionary measures in a bid to lessen possible negative impacts.

“As we all know, the previous Vuli rainy season 2023 was dominated by heavy rainfall characterised by the El-Nino condition. This El-Nino condition caused many parts to get heavy rains leading to floods,” he explained.

He said the huge amounts of rain were recorded at various TMA’s weather stations. The rains brought effects to various sectors and caused damages to infrastructures.

Dr Chang’s said considering the importance of weather forecast, the government under President Samia Suluhu Hassan has continued with efforts to strengthen meteorological services in the country, including huge investments in infrastructures for weather forecast and processing of information.

“We, therefore, thank the government and development stakeholders for continued investments in the meteorological infrastructures in the country through the budgets and various programmes,” he Dr Chang’a stated.

With this, the TMA has continued improving its information by issuing weather forecasts for specific sectors. The authority has continued providing weather reports for small areas in all districts in the regions that receive Masika rainfall.

“Weather forecast reports for Masika rains in 86 districts have been prepared, hence, it is important that each sector gets this information timely and use it for making decisions and putting appropriate plans,” he urged
