  • Rains increase for Nigeria and far Western Africa during the past week.

  • Local parts of southeast Sudan and northwest Ethiopia exhibit increasing rainfall deficits in recent weeks.

1) A delayed onset of the rainy season, followed by poorly-distributed rainfall, has led to abnormal dryness across Burkina Faso, the central and northern parts of Ghana, Togo, and Benin, western and southern Niger, and northern Nigeria. The lack of rainfall over the past several weeks has delayed planting and has already negatively affected cropping activities over many local areas.
