Africa Weather Hazards
Poorly-distributed rainfall during August and early September has delayed crop development over parts of southern Burkina Faso and northern Ghana. Below-average rain is forecast next week, which further reduces the chance for recovery.
An abnormal heat polygon is posted across portions of Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, and Mozambique, where surface temperatures are forecast to range 4-8°C above average and maximum temperatures could exceed 40°C.
