This map illustrates the total August rainfall accumulation for East Africa, derived from the CMORPH precipitation dataset at a spatial resolution of approximately 10km for this region, and was calculated using microwave and infrared data from geostationary satellites. It is possible that precipitation levels may have been underestimated for local areas, and is not a substitute for ground station measurements.

Weekly Introduction:
Intertropical Convergence Zone Analysis (ITCZ) Re-Initiated:

On April 1 we re-initiated the program to depict the dekadal position of the ITCZ along with a comparison with its normal position at the following site: http://www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/products/fews/ITCZ/itcz.html. The ten-day average ITCZ position is plotted and compared with the estimated rainfall for that period and the first plot for the season will cover April 1-10.
