In the upcoming days, it’s anticipated that the extreme southern cities, towns, and villages will have a respite from the dry and cloudy circumstances.
This will be brought on by a temporal reversal of the upper-level winds region, an intrusion of moisture from the sea, and other climatic characteristics, according to the 2022/2023 harmattan season advisory update released on January 23, 2023.
The announcement, penned by Ag. Director-General Eric Asuman stated that “from now through February 2023, localized rainfall or thundery events are expected for the aforementioned areas.”
The organization also forecasts an increase in Ghana’s daytime and nighttime temperatures.
The sun, which is currently in the southern hemisphere, is moving northward toward the equator at a rate of about 19 degrees Celsius in the southern latitude. The equinox in 2023 is predicted to occur on March 20, when the sun will be above and there will be 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of darkness (also known as “Equal day and equal night”). It is anticipated that Ghana will see higher daytime and nighttime temperatures as a result of this astronomical event.
