  • 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.

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.

25 Sep 2013 description

 Some relief to dryness is expected across the Gulf of Guinea region during the end of September.

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 mid to late September now remains critical for several local areas that have planted late.

28 Aug 2013 description

 A slight reduction in rainfall was observed across West Africa, while seasonal rains continued over eastern Africa during the past week.

14 Aug 2013 description
  • 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.

24 Jul 2013 description

 Dryness worsens across Sudan, Eritrea and northwest Ethiopia.

 Abnormal dryness develops across bi-modal areas in Ghana and southern Togo.

1) A migratory locust outbreak in October-November was accelerated with the landfall of Tropical Cyclone Haruna in February, which provided favorable conditions for locust breeding throughout western Madagascar. This large-scale outbreak should subside with cooler weather in July-August.

17 Jul 2013 description

 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.

23 Aug 2012 description
  • 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.

09 Aug 2012 description
  • 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.

Opponents of the Prosecutor's move argued that it amounted to a call for regime-change and would imperil any future peace negotiations and the still-incomplete deployment of peacekeepers.
