Experimental Climate Monitoring and Prediction for the Maldives – April 2023

     

HIGHLIGHTS

Monitored: During March, the central islands received up to 10 mm of rainfall, while other islands received less. The average cumulative rainfall for the central and southern islands exceeded climatology by 27% and was near-normal for the northern islands.

Predictions: ENSO-neutral conditions are expected to continue through the Northern Hemisphere spring, followed by a 62% chance of El Niño developing during May-July 2023. Seasonal climate predictions predict a dry and warmer tendency from May to July 2023 for the Maldives.

Experimental Climate Monitoring and Prediction for the Maldives – March 2023

    

HIGHLIGHTS

Monitored: During February, the entire Maldives received less than 5 mm of rainfall. The average rainfall exceeded climatology in the central and southern islands by 29%; and was normal in the northern islands.

Predictions: La Niña has ended and ENSO-neutral conditions are expected to continue in the months ahead. Seasonal climate predictions predict a climatological average from April to June 2023 for the Maldives.

Experimental Climate Monitoring and Prediction for the Maldives – February 2023

   

HIGHLIGHTS

Monitored: During January, the entire Maldives received up to 5 mm, while some islands received less. The average rainfall exceeded climatology in the central and southern islands by 27%; and was in deficit by 2% in the northern islands.

Predictions: A transition from the level of a La Niña to ENSO-neutral state is expected in the months ahead. Seasonal climate predictions predict a climatological average from March to May 2023 for the Maldives.

Experimental Climate Monitoring and Prediction for the Maldives – January 2023

  

HIGHLIGHTS

Monitored: During December, the central islands received up to 10 mm above average rainfall while remaining islands received less. The average rainfall exceeded climatology in the central and southern islands by 26%; and was normal in the northern islands.

Predictions: A transition from the level of a La Niña to ENSO-neutral state is expected in the months ahead. Seasonal climate predictions predict a climatological average from February to April 2023 for the Maldives.

Experimental Climate Monitoring and Prediction for the Maldives – December 2022

 

HIGHLIGHTS

Monitored: During November, 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 26%; and was normal in the northern islands.

Predictions: A transition from the level of a La Niña to ENSO-neutral state is expected in the months ahead. Seasonal climate predictions predict a climatological average from January to March 2023 for the Maldives.

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.
