It added that localised thunderstorms were anticipated over places like Jos, Ilorin, Bida, Minna, Yelwa and Abuja axis during afternoon and evening hours.

The agency predicted that the southern states would experience cloudy conditions with chances of isolated rain showers over Benin, Calabar, Uyo and Warri axis in the morning hours.

It also predicted isolated thunderstorms over Enugu, Abakaliki, Lagos, Oshogbo, Akure, Yenagoa and Port Harcourt later in the day with day and night temperatures of 32 to 37 and 21 to 26 degrees Celsius, respectively.
