MAPUTO, March. 24 (Xinhua) -- Mozambique will modernize its weather monitoring network nationwide and expand it to the entire country by 2025, an official said Monday.

The modernization work has already begun, said Mussa Mustafa, deputy director of the National Meteorology Institute of Mozambique.

"We intend to set up automatic stations that require less human intervention and that can make accurate observations and bring us data, which will allow us to know about the weather in a certain period," said Mustafa.

The city of Beira in Sofala province will have a forecast center endorsed by the African Development Bank, he said.

Out of the 154 districts in Mozambique, only 72 districts currently have weather stations.
