Pictures from the Sunyani Coronation Park, the venue of the event, show the park has become muddy.
Activities have come to a halt due to the rains, but Kemini Amanor of the Komla Dumor Newsroom of Starr FM said the police have defied the unfriendly weather to ensure maximum protection and traffic control.
Reports also say the heavy storm is threatening to destroy mounted canopy stands and other banners hence majority of the supporters and the media have taken cover to protect lives and properties.
The governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) is in Sunyani, the capital of the Brong Ahafo region, to launch its 2016 manifesto ahead of the December 7 elections.
Over 50,000 supporters are expected to gather at the Sunyani Coronation Park to welcome party executives including President John Mahama for the big occasion.
Mahama has already given highlights of the much-talked about policy document, revealing that his second term is likely to give Ghana five extra administrative regions, e-text books to students, over 20 polyclinics, two more psychiatric hospitals, tri-cycles for persons with disability among others.
He said the manifesto aims at putting people first, accountable governance and expanding infrastructure for job creation.
The police have assured of maximum security and will be resorting to hi-tech gadgets such as drones to monitor the event.
