The thunderstorms primarily affected the cities of Jerada, Oujda, Berkane, and Nador.
Moderate thunderstorms hit central Morocco, including Azilal and Beni Mellal.
Thunderstorms also hit the south, including Ouarzazate and the Al Haouz.
The recent rain showers are expected to benefit agricultural lands affected by severe drought across the country, particularly in the south.
Morocco’s Ministry of Agriculture announced earlier this year that crop yields were significantly impacted by the seasonal lack of rainfall.
Minister of Agriculture Aziz Akhannouch said in June that his department allocated MAD 350 million ($35.89 million) to assist farmers affected by drought.
The payment of the funds started in mid-April to mitigate the impact of the rainfall deficit.
