Accra, Sept. 9, GNA
– The rains currently being experienced in the Southern part of the country do
not indicate the beginning of the minor rainy season.
The rains, which are
the result of current pertaining weather systems that have nothing to do with
the season and would come down a few more times before the minor season sets
Mr James Dusu,
Senior Meteorologist at the Ghana Meteorological Agency, Kotoka International
Airport, said this in an interview with the Ghana News Agency.
He said the second
and minor rainy season however, is expected to begin “somewhere around the
third week of September.
Mr Dusu said the
Northern part of the country on the other hand, which is presently in its major
and only rainy season, would be tapering towards the end of the season around
the same period, the third week of September.
Southern Ghana has
two rainy seasons annually, consisting of the major and the minor seasons,
whilst Northern Ghana experiences one major rainy season every year.
