A decrease in rainfall has been recorded over Southern Africa during the past week.

A favorable start of the March-May season has been observed over the Greater Horn of Africa.

1) Heavy and above-average rains over the past few weeks have increased rainfall surpluses and resulted in flooding across the Omusati region along the Angola-Namibian border. The inundation has led to the closure of several schools in the area. Moderate to heavy rains are forecast to continue during the next week, which could trigger new flooding and exacerbate conditions on the ground.
