Heavy rainfall of 100mm to 200mm per day is being forecast for southern Mozambique and parts of South Africa as they are hit by the formidable storm system known as Dineo. South African Weather Service chief forecaster Kevin Rae said that Dineo‚ classified for now as a Severe Tropical Storm‚ would gather strength as it reached the coast of Mozambique late on Wednesday evening‚ near Massinga‚ north of Inhambane. “Dineo is also quite likely to undergo a final surge of intensification‚ just before arriving over land and there is a good chance that it will reach Tropical Cyclone status‚” he said in a weather update.
