The Ghana Meteorological Agency (Gmet) has stated that Ghanaians might experience a long dry spell this year, particularly in the coastal areas.

Captain Stephen Komla, the director general of the Gmet stated this in an interview during a workshop for meteorologists in Accra on Tuesday.

He said the usual rains experienced in the previous years might not be seen as there would be less normal rainfall in the southern parts of the country.

The World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) is organising the one-week training programme for staff of the agency on the WMO strategy for service delivery, a document that is intended to help members of the organisation to deliver quality service.

It is also aimed at offering the GMet the opportunity to interact with stakeholders who have been benefiting from their services.

Captain Komla indicated that while the middle belt was expected to experience an average rainfall pattern, the northern belt would experience normal rainfall; a situation he said might add up to the benefit of the Akosombo Dam.

“If we are lucky, the rains in the northern part will have some positive effect on the Akosombo Dam, since the dam takes its source of water from the northern part,” he concluded.
