The agency predicted that the southern States would experience early morning mist/fog over the coastal cities leading to partly cloudy condition with chances of localised thundery showers over Warri, Yenegoa and Port Harcourt.
It also predicted sunny and hazy conditions over the inland cities throughout the forecast period with day and night temperatures in the range of 33 to 37 and 16 to 25 degrees Celsius respectively.
