Information about the projection for the cacimbo season in Angola, from May 15th to August 15th, was transmitted in a press conference by the National Institute of Meteorology and Geophysics (Inamet).
According to the institution, during the period the minimum temperatures may be recorded in the provinces of Bié, Cuando-Cubango, Cunene, Huambo, Huíla, Moxico and in some municipalities in the provinces of Malanje, Benguela, Namibe and Cuanza Sul.
In relation to the province of Luanda, minimum temperatures are expected between 17º and 19ºC, during the month of June, and for July they will be between 14º and 16ºC.
António Lamera Gaspar, meteorologist at Inamet, who presented the projection of the cold season in Angola, said that during this period low clouds will be visible on the coast of the coast.
Regarding the Luanda, Cabinda and Cuanza Norte regions, "very cloudy mornings are due to the atmospheric pressure system", and in the south center, "exemption from cloud formation" is foreseen, he said.
The expert recalled that the atmospheric pressure of the country is not uniform, adding that in the season that starts already on Friday, May 15, the most frequent phenomena "are the morning mist and fog".
"The wind pattern at this time is blowing from the south southeast and will be a dry wind with little relative humidity and this wind is generally moderate and can reach up to a maximum of eight meters per second," he explained.
Angola is geographically located in the hot tropical climatic zone between the 5th and 18th south latitudes, a position that gives the country two distinct climatic seasons during the year.
The rainy season covers the period from 15 August to 15 May and the drought or cacimbo between 15 May and 15 August.
