The Ghana Meteorological Agency (GMA) has served notice there will be a downpour on Independence Day.
The GMA has cautioned organisers of the Independence Day parade throughout Ghana to end activities by 1pm else they will be drenched.
According to the Meteo Agency, the middle belt will experience rains which might mar the parades. The regions to be affected are Ashanti, Brong Ahafo, Central, Volta and Eastern.
Last year the Meteo Agency received a lot of public flak for failing to predict torrential rains which disrupted the parade that ended in President John Mahama being soaked while inspecting the parade.
Principal Meteo Officer Muller Tsatsu Siame told Starr News they are working closely with the organisers of the Independence Day parades to avert such occurrence.
