1) Persistent below-average rainfall since August over several bimodal areas of Ghana, Togo, and Benin led to strong moisture deficits and a degradation of ground conditions. However, increased rainfall since October has resulted in much improved ground conditions in the region.
Light rains spread across many southern and central parts of Somalia are expected in the next three days. The northern parts of the country are expected to receive moderate rains over the same period, with few pockets in Togdheer and Bari regions experiencing high rainfall of up to 100mm which can lead to flash floods. The upper catchment of the Shabelle River in Ethiopia will receive high rains as well, which translates to increase in river levels later in the week.
