Strong winds at 800m is expected to transport the dust to the country, particularly the North and North-central regions, in the next few hours.”
The release further disclosed that satellite images obtained indicates that In the next 24 hours, there are high prospects of THICK DUST HAZE (poor horizontal visibility, 1000m) over Katsina, Zamfara, Kano, Kaduna, Yobe and Jigawa; while other northern states are expected to report MODERATE DUST-HAZE (visibility of 2–5km).
NiMet expects that this weather condition is expected to persist for the next 3 days and that Day-Time Temperature (Max) is expected to fall as a result of this plume of dust coming into the country.
