Experimental Climate Monitoring and Prediction for the Maldives – October 2022

  

HIGHLIGHTS

Monitored: During September, the central islands received up to 15 mm above average rainfall while remaining islands received less. The average rainfall exceeded climatology in the central and southern islands by 20%; and was in deficit by 8% in the northern islands.

Predictions: A La Niña is expected to continue in the months ahead. Seasonal climate predictions predict a climatological average from October to December 2022 for the Maldives.

Experimental Climate Monitoring and Prediction for the Maldives – April 2022

  

HIGHLIGHTS

Monitored: 
During March, the central islands received up to 5mm of rainfall while the remaining islands received less.
The average rainfall exceeded climatology in the Northern islands by 10%; and was in deficit by 44% in the Central islands and by 19% in the southern islands.
A deficit was built up during March for the all the islands however, an above-average rainfall was experienced in the Northern and Central islands from April. 

Predictions: A La Niña is in place for April and shall continue in the months ahead. Seasonal climate predictions predict a drought tendency from May to July 2022 for the Maldives.
