Climate Prediction Center’s Africa Hazards Outlook July 24 – July 30, 2014

preview
  • A large area of enhanced rainfall may trigger localized flooding across parts of eastern Sudan.
  • Consistently poor rainfall has led to deteriorating ground conditions across northeastern Nigeria and western Chad.

1) The potential for significantly heavy rainfall remains forecast over the River Nile and Kassala provinces of eastern Sudan, which may trigger localized flooding and elevated river levels along the Nile River basin during the next seven days.

Climate Prediction Center’s Africa Hazards Outlook October 3 – October 9, 2013

Heavy rains were observed across dry areas in bi-modal regions along the Gulf of Guinea.

1) A pronounced late start of seasonal rainfall in July has delayed planting by approximately one month and has reduced crop yields across many parts of Sudan. The onset of continuous seasonal rainfall during September and October now remains critical for several local areas that have planted late. However, with seasonal rains quickly coming to an end, little time remains for additional rainfall.

  • Rainfall deficits grow along the Gulf of Guinea, while dryness persists in eastern Sudan.

1) A delayed start of the rainfall season across northwestern Ethiopia, southern Eritrea, and bordering areas in Sudan has begun to negatively impact cropping activities, including planting. Heavy rains are, however, forecast during the next outlook period, which could provide some relief to dry conditions throughout the region.

 Heavy and above-average rains fell in Sudan, causing flooding and infrastructure damages.

1) A poor start of the rainfall season across northwestern Ethiopia, southern Eritrea, and bordering areas in Sudan has begun to negatively impact cropping activities, including planting. Above-average rains are, however, forecast during the next outlook period, which could provide some relief to dry conditions throughout the region.

Climate Prediction Center’s Africa Hazards Outlook For USAID / FEWS-NET July 18 – July 24, 2013

 Rains continue to recover across the Sahel of West Africa, while rainfall deficits develop along the Gulf of Guinea.

 Seasonal rainfall deficits grow and expand into eastern/central Sudan.

1) During much of May and the beginning of June, intermittent and insufficient rains had increased rainfall deficits over parts of northeastern Nigeria, resulting in poor NDVI values and delayed planting. However, recent moderate to heavy rains have decreased seasonal rainfall deficits and expected rains should be enough to satisfy cropping requirements.

Desert Locust Bulletin No. 415 (April 2013)

The Desert Locust situation remained serious during April in northern Sudan where hopper bands were present near crops along a 1,000 km strech of the Nile River. Swarms could form in May and threaten crops, and a second generation of breeding could take place before the summer or, if early rains fall, adults could move to the summer breeding areas in Sudan. There is also concern in Saudi Arabia where new generation adults could move from the northwest Penninsula, including Yemen, and breed in areas of recent heavy rains.

Climate Prediction Center’s Africa Hazards Outlook For USAID / FEWS-NET September 27 – October 3, 2012

1) Both anomalous seasonal rainfall and northward position of the Inter-Tropical front has favored breeding conditions for desert locusts over the southern Mauritania-western Mali border, central Niger-eastern Mali, Chad, and east-central Sudan. The continuation of above-average rainfall during September could lead to locust outbreak across many regions.

Climate Prediction Center’s Africa Hazards Outlook For USAID / FEWS-NET August 23 – August 29, 2012

  • Wet conditions prevail across West Africa and eastern Africa.
  • Hatching eggs and low-density locusts increase the potential for locust outbreak over many regions.

1) Heavy rains during the past week have caused flooding, destroying more than two thousand homes in El Fasher, Sudan. Flooding potential remains as locally heavy rains are forecast to continue during the next week.

  • Torrential rains continue across the western portions of West Africa.
  • Widespread heavy rains were observed across eastern Africa.
  • Hatching eggs and low-density locusts increase the potential for locust outbreak over many regions.

1) Heavy downpours have resulted in fatalities and displaced population over North and Central Darfur regions of Sudan during the past week. Flooding potential remains as heavy rains are forecast to continue during the next week.

Escalating crisis in Sahel and Sudan

Media release

Canberra

9 February 2012

Australia is responding quickly to prevent a deepening food shortage in the Sahel region in Africa and address urgent humanitarian needs in Sudan and South Sudan.

Foreign Minister Kevin Rudd said that millions of people in the Sahel are in need of food following drought, reduced crop harvests and people movements from other parts of Africa affected by conflict, such as Libya and Cote d'Ivoire.

Emergency Transboundary Outbreak Pest (ETOP) Situation Report for July with a Forecast till mid-September, 2011

Summary The Desert Locust (SGR) situation remained relatively calm in July in the summer breeding areas in the Sahel, North Africa, Red Sea region and Southwest Asia. A few mature adults were seen in Sahel West Africa and the interior of Sudan and a similar situation may be present in western Eritrea.
