Monitored: During May, northern parts of the country received rainfall above than is normal for the season by more than 100 mm; and central and southern islands received normal rainfall. The southern islands recorded the highest rainfall for the period in the past six years. The sea surface temperature around Maldives was 1°C above normal. This is extremely warm.
Predictions: IMD GFS model predicts up to 10 mm of rainfall in the northern and central islands on June 17th. On the 18th, rainfall up to 20 mm is expected in central islands and up to 10 mm in the southern and northern islands. On the 19th, rainfall up to 20 mm of is expected in the northern and central islands and up to 10 mm in the southern islands. Long Range Weather prediction models simulations anticipate total rainfall up to 25 mm for the entire country next week.
