Climate Prediction Center’s Africa Hazards Outlook May 8 – May 14, 2014


 Anomalously heavy rains were observed across much of South Sudan, increasing rainfall surpluses.

 Dryness continued across parts of Kenya and northeastern Uganda.

1) Consistently low and infrequent seasonal precipitation across some bimodal rainfall areas of northern Tanzania, southwestern Kenya, and northeastern Uganda have resulted in strengthening moisture deficits since late March. A continuation of suppressed rainfall in May is likely to adversely impact developing crops and pastoral conditions in the region.
