This year’s harmattan or dry season, is expected to hit southern Ghana towards Christmas.
The northern part of the country, however, has been experiencing the harmattan season for the past three weeks.
Mr. Tettey Portuphey, Head of Forecasting, Ghana Meteorological Agency(GMet), told the Ghana News Agency in an interview that the country’s south had very little surface atmospheric moisture, resulting in cloudy skies churning out rain.
The Senior Meteorologist, said the current weather being experienced in the country’s south, would soon be followed by the actual harmattan season.
The harmattan or dry season occurs towards the end of the year and characterised by average to extreme atmospheric dryness.
