Monitored: During November, most parts of the country received rainfall below than is normal for the season by up to 120 mm. The Northern Islands have been having a rainfall deficit in the last year compared to normal rainfall, that increased up to 300 mm during November. The Central Islands have an excess of 250 mm of rainfall during last year compared to the average while the Southern Islands are having an excess of 400 mm. The sea surface temperature around Maldives is above 0.5 0C normal.
Predictions: IMD GFS model predicts up to 40 mm of rainfall in the southern islands; up to 10 mm in northern and central islands on December 3rd and 4th. On the 5th and 6th up to 40 mm of rainfall is expected in southern islands and up to 10 mm in northern islands. Long Range Weather prediction simulations anticipate total rainfall up to 100 mm for central islands during December 1st-6th.
|In November, the southern islands received up to 450 mm of total rainfall.|
