Stormy Rainfall to Hit Several Moroccan Provinces

Rabat – Morocco’s Directorate of General Meteorology (DMN) announced on Monday a new weather alert, forecasting heavy rainfall in several Moroccan provinces this week.

The weather alert said that cold weather will persist until Sunday in several regions across Morocco.

Heavy rain between 25 and 35 millimeters is expected to hit the provinces of Aousserd and Oued Eddahab on Thursday from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Tetouan, Fahs-Anjra, M’diq-Fnideq, and Tangier-Asilah will experience strong gusts of wind ranging from 75 to 95 kilometers from Thursday at 12 p.m. to Saturday at 10:00 p.m.

The provinces of Nador, Al Haouz, Agadir-Ida-Ou-Tanane, Chtouka ait Baha, Tinznit, and Inzegane Ait Melloul will also experience strong wind between 70 to 85 kilometers per hour from Friday 3 a.m. to Sunday 6 p.m.

The same weather will hit Sidi Ifni, Taroudant, Tan-Tan, and Guelmim.

Snowfall between 05 to 20 centimeters will be experienced in the provinces of Taroudant, Al Haouz, Chichaoua, Ouarzazate, and Tiznit on Friday.

Morocco has been experiencing a cold snap that has been affecting the majority of the country’s provinces.

In response, King Mohammed VI ordered in January the launch of a solidarity campaign for people affected by the significant drop in temperatures in the provinces of the Great and Middle Atlas.

The Mohammed V Foundation for Solidarity launched the campaign in cooperation with the ministry of interior and local authorities to deliver humanitarian aid to families residing in remote areas in the provinces benefiting from the aid – including Midelt, Khenifra, Azilal, and Al Haouz.

Beneficiaries will receive kits consisting of food products as well as blankets.
