November Rain, Thunderstorms in FCT, Northern States Caused by Climate Variability, NiMet Clarifies

NiMET has attributed the rain and thunderstorms reported in some states in November to climate variability caused by natural and atmospheric conditions.

The Agency provided this clarification in a statement released on Monday, emphasizing that the rainy season in northern Nigeria for 2023 has concluded, aligning with earlier predictions.

“There were clouds build-up over the Northwestern and North Central parts of the country and FCT resulted in thunderstorms that we experienced on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th November.

“It, however, clarified that the development does not change the season as predicted, rather, fluctuations based on temporary weather modulators”, NiMET explained.

The Meteorological Agency added that moisture influx and high energy in the atmosphere resulted in condensation and formation of clouds stating that, “it is not exclusive to Nigeria”.
