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.

 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.
