A cyclone named Ambali, the first such one in the current rainy season, is due to make landfall in the northern parts of Mozambique on Monday.
According to the National Institute of Meteorology, the large scale air mass that is currently being formed in the Indian Ocean has the potential to evolve into a more threatening moderate storm, but the experts do not give the exact odds over such a development.
The meteorologists are currently determining the cyclone trajectory, forecasting it could hit the Cabo Delgado province during Monday and later head towards Nampula.
