Zimbabweans might be waking up to rain and yet more mud, but the good news is that the weather is still set to improve, with most areas mostly sunny and hot, the Meteorological Services Department (MSD) has said.

Temperatures are expected to rise with the sun breaking through thick cloud for bright spells.

Meteorologists have warned that there may still be the odd thundery shower. "Much of the country is forecast to be mostly sunny and hot, with isolated thunderstorms in all Matabeleland provinces, Bulawayo Metropolitan Province, Harare Metropolitan Province and all Mashonaland provinces," MSD meteorologist James Ngoma said.

This comes as rainfall activity has been continuing in most parts of the Mashonaland provinces, while Harare has been generally dry.

"There was rainfall activity in the extreme northern areas of Matabeleland North Province, and all Mashonaland Provinces with some of the notable amounts measured at our Meteorological Stations being: 50millimetres (mm) at Hwange Airport, 28mm at Hwange town, 27mm at Bindura University and 25mm at Centenary," Ngoma said.
