UGANDA is set to be hit with heavy rain and floods for the rest of the year, the Uganda Meteorological department has warned.
The Met Office warned the rest of the year could see frequent showers and thunder in most parts of the country due to the rain-belt being over Uganda.
This is attributed to the most winds blowing from the Indian ocean and the Congo forests.
“The wet conditions being realized are peak rains of the September, October, Novemberand December rainfall season 2019,” a Met warning reads.
Heavy rains with lightning and thunder are expected to prevail over the most parts of the country within the next five days starting from Saturday 26th October to Wednesday 30th October 2019.
These rains are expected to cause flooding especially in the urban centres and low lying areas, Met further warns.
Areas most likely to be affected are the southern and western regions particularly Kigezi highlandsm Rwenzori mountain ranges, parts of central region especialy around Lake Victoria and the eastern parts of the country especially Mt. Elgon areas.
