Highlights

January marks the beginning of the typically dry Jillal (January- March) season across Somalia. In January 2021, harsh and drier than normal weather conditions prevailed throughout the country, with none of the rain gauge stations countrywide reporting any rainfall (see Map 1 and Table 1).
Satellite estimated rainfall for January 2021 indicates localized light showers (<10mm) in the first dekad of the month in southern parts of Bay and Gedo, parts of Middle Shabelle, Lower Shabelle, Middle Juba and Lower Juba (see Map 2-5). There was no rainfall in the second and third dekads of January in any part of Somalia.
