Africa Weather Hazards

  1. Delayed seasonal rainfall and increased precipitation last month led to dryness in Ethiopia, southern Somalia and Kenya. Dryness is expected to strengthen into midNovember.

  2. Poorly distributed precipitation in the last two months and high daytime temperatures caused early season dryness in southern Botswana, South Africa, parts of Swaziland and Lesotho.

  3. Consecutive weeks of poor rainfall led to dryness across central and western Madagascar.

  4. Below-normal rainfall and warmer than average temperatures in central Angola have impacted vegetation health.
