Weekly Introduction

ITCZ Update:

During the period from September 11 - 20, 2006, the African portion of the ITCZ was located near 17.2 degrees north latitude when averaged from 15 degrees west to 35 degrees east longitude and over the ten day period. This compares to the normal position of around 16.8 degrees north, and a position last year near 15.7 north. The ITCZ was nearly stationary during the previous ten days, when averaged over the entire Sahel. See Figure 1 for the current, past, and mean ITCZ with ten day accumulated precipitation.
