The inland states of the South and coastal cities are expected to witness cloudy skies with intervals of sunshine in the morning, while localized thunderstorms are anticipated later in the day over parts of Imo, Abia, Edo, Delta, Bayelsa, Rivers, Akwa Ibom, and Cross River States.
NiMet predicts that Tuesday will see sunny and hazy skies prevailing over the North and North Central regions.
