The formation of a low atmospheric pressure system in the Indian Ocean has alerted meteorologists to the possibility of it developing into a Moderate Tropical Storm, tentatively named “Ambali”, which will be the first in this rainy season in Mozambique.
In a statement, the National Institute of Meteorology reports that “a system of low atmospheric pressure is being formed at latitude 5° South, longitude 52° East longitude in the Indian Ocean north of Madagascar. In the current weather conditions, there is a possibility it will evolve into a Moderate Tropical Storm.”
Although there is as yet no “great certainty about its trajectory”, meteorologists admit the possibility that the provisionally christened “Ambali” cyclone will enter Mozambican territory on Monday, December 2, via Cabo Delgado province, where it may evolve into a Severe Tropical Storm lashing Nampula on the following Wednesday, December 4.
Meanwhile, the death toll from the current rainy season rose to nine last weekend with the deaths of three more citizens in Zambezia province. A mother and her 4-year-old daughter were killed by lightning in Pebane district, and another person fell victim to the same misadventure in Nicoadala district.
