Rainfall deficits persist in eastern Kenya and southern Ethiopia

Significant rainfall deficits of between 100 to 200 mm persist across the northeastern pastoral areas of Kenya, covering the districts of Isiolo and Moyale, and large parts of Marsabit, Samburu, Tana River, and Wajir districts. These districts have received less than 10 percent of their average March‐April‐May (MAM) seasonal totals by the start of the second dekad of May. Similar significant deficits persist in the southern Ethiopia regions of Borena and Liban (Figure 1).

Rainfall deficits deepen in eastern and northern Kenya

The March to May rainfall seasonal performance continues to be close to average in most of the key cropping areas of Burundi, western Kenya, Tanzania, and Rwanda.

However, significant rainfall deficits of between 50 ‐150 mm persist across the agro‐pastoral areas of southeastern Kenya; the belg cropping areas of Ethiopia, including SNNPR, the northeastern highlands, and southern and eastern parts of Oromia; parts of southwestern Sudan; and the bimodal cropping areas of Uganda (Figure 1).

Rainfall deficits persist in the eastern Horn

Performance of the March to May rains continues to be close to average in most of the cropping areas of Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi,
Uganda, and western Kenya. However, rains have been persistently below‐average in parts of the bimodal cropping areas of northern Uganda, southern parts of Sudan, southeastern Kenya and the Belg cropping areas of Ethiopia, including SNNPR, the northeastern highlands, and southern and eastern parts of Oromia region with deficits amounting to 50‐150 mm (Figure 1).

FEWS NET will publish a Rain Watch for the East Africa region every 10 days through the end of the March-June rainy season, with a special focus on ongoing crisis areas in the region. Its purpose is to assess the progress of the season and the potential impacts on food insecurity, which is currently at high or extreme levels in several areas.

Key messages

- Food security in East Africa has improved following above?average harvests from the long rains season (March to May) and good rangeland conditions. Food security is likely to continue to improve as main season harvests take place and staple food prices decline over the outlook period (October 2010 to March 2011), particularly in northern and western parts of the region.

- Forecasts for the October to December rainy season indicate a likelihood of below?normal rains in the eastern sector of the region due to a La Niña event.

02 Nov 2010 description

The recent IGAD Climate Prediction and Application Centre (ICPAC) forecast confirms that a La Niña event continues and will likely persist into 2011. As a result, rainfall during the October?December period is likely to be below?average in the eastern sector of East Africa (Figure 1). An analysis of rainfall during past La Niña years suggests that while early season rainfall may be favorable, precipitation later in the season is likely to be erratic and end early.

KEY DEVELOPMENTS

h In FY 2010, above-normal October to December 2009 rainfall in many areas of eastern Africa resulted in decreased food insecurity due to above-average harvests and improved pasture conditions for livestock, according to the USAID-funded Famine Early Warning Systems Network (FEWS NET).
