The Ghana Meteorological Agency has discounted reports suggesting that a major thunderstorm coming in from Nigeria could disrupt Sunday’s Independence Day parade at the Black Star Square.
Sources at the Meteorological Agency have told Citifmonline.com that Ghanaians will experience a cloudy weather in the early hours of the day, March 6, 2016.
They added that only scattered bouts of rainfall would be recorded in the middle, forest and mountainous areas in the late afternoon.
The Ghana Meteorological Agency also indicated that on Monday, March 7, there would be scattered bouts of rainfall and a thunderstorm in the late afternoon along the coast and forests areas.
Ghana at 57 disrupted by rain
Activities marking the 57th Independence Day Parade two years ago, were disrupted by a downpour.
The downpour however did not deter President John Dramani Mahama from lighting the perpetual flame in remembrance of the country’s fallen soldiers.
Although security services were able to march past in the rain, students from both first and second cycle schools as well as some organised bodies present did not march on the day.
The Ghana Meteorological Agency was at the time criticized for not giving indications about the weather.
