Starting today, Zimbabwe is set to experience a cold spell lasting until Wednesday, with temperatures dropping as low as three degrees Celsius in the morning. The Meteorological Services Department (MSD) predicts drizzle, cloud cover, and windy conditions in some areas.

The cold spell is attributed to a significant increase in wind pressure over the southeast coast of southern Africa, leading to a cold and moist south-easterly airflow into Zimbabwe.

Friday is expected to be cold and relatively dry, with temperatures below three degrees Celsius in frost-prone areas such as Matopos, Gweru, Lupane, Masvingo, Marondera, and Nyanga. From Saturday onwards, Matabeleland South, Masvingo, and Manicaland Provinces will experience cloudy, windy, and cold weather throughout the day, with light rain and drizzle in some places.

These conditions are forecasted to extend to other provinces, including Bulawayo Metropolitan, southern parts of Matabeleland North and Midlands, Harare, and Mashonaland East, until Sunday. The weather is expected to gradually warm up as the clouds dissipate by Wednesday.
