The cold wave hitting Morocco is still ongoing. The rain and snowfalls in several regions of the country is set to continue until Friday, December 6, at the earliest.
Rabat – Morocco’s National Meteorological Directorate announced today, December 4, that the ongoing wave of cold and rainy weather currently hitting several regions of the kingdom will continue until at least Friday, December 6.
On Thursday, heavy thunderstorms will hit the provinces of Tiznit, Sidi Ifni, and Chtouka-Ait Baha between 12 and 7pm. Less severe thunderstorms will also hit the provinces of Guelmim and Tan-Tan on the same day between 8am and 4pm.
The provinces of Al Haouz, Midelt, Tinghir, and Ouarzazate will expect snowfalls between Thursday at 8pm and Friday midnight.
As cold waves in Morocco can be very intense, especially in mountainous areas, the Moroccan government has launched the 2019-2020 national plan to support the population during the cold waves.
On November 27, Ministry of Interior Abdelouafi Laftit announced that more than 736,000 Moroccans, living in over 27 different provinces, will benefit from the plan.
The initiative includes supplying the target villages with necessities, heating, and livestock feed, as well as linking them to telecommunication systems. The plan also ensures providing the target areas with health care.
