It was showers of blessings in parts of Lagos on Wednesday as Nigeria’s economic capital recorded the first rain of 2024.

For about 20 minutes, areas like Ishashi, and Iba LCDA had light showers that were almost immediately replaced by sunny weather.

In January 2024, Lagos weather is expected to reach a 32°C daytime maximum temperature in the shade with on average 6 hours of sunshine per day.

Meanwhile, residents have been sharing mixed feelings about the first downpour in Lagos State in 2024.
