Per Ghana’s current hot weather, A Ghanaian born, Julius Amamkwa based in Denmark who claims to be a Snowtologist predicts that, Ghana will experience serious snow in the future if things keep going the way he sees it as far as climate change is concerned.
The climate of Ghana is tropical and there are two main seasons: the wet and the dry seasons. North Ghana experiences its rainy season from April to mid-October while South Ghana experiences its rainy season from March to mid-November.
According to him, it is likely that Ghana may experience snowfall during Christmas in the coming years. Our part of the world does not support that phenomenon and it would be out of this world to have snow falling in Ghana. The closes we can come to snow is our experience with harmattan but things are likely to change.
March temperatures are the highest in most areas while August temperatures are the lowest. Night and day temperatures do not vary a lot, although the variation is a little higher in the north, more so when the harmattan blows in January. The lowest temperature in Ghana to ever be recorded is 10 °C (50 °F).
In the center and north, winter is hot: daytime temperatures are usually about 35 °C (95 °F) in December and January, even though the air is dry and nights are cool. Sometimes at night, however, the weather can get a bit cold in the center-north, with lows around 10 °C (50 °F).
Julius Amamkwa is yet to break down his mechanism on this prediction as to how he managed to discover his claims.
If this predictions should be right, Ghana will be the first west African country to have ever experienced snow fall.
