The weather statement followed a notice from the directorate on February 3, forecasting strong wind and snowfall in several provinces.
The forecast also projected rain of different levels in different provinces across the country.
In addition to the government, farmers predicted a good year after a dry season last year due to lack of rainfalls.
The government also said that the recent rainfalls showed significant improvement regarding dam reserves.
In January, the ministry said that the filling rate of the dams increased from 37% on January 1 to 44.8% to date.
The number represents a stored water reserve of 7.19 billion cubic meter.
