Experimental Climate Monitoring and Prediction for the Maldives – October 2019


Monitored: During October, the whole country received rainfall above than is normal for the season. The Southern and Northern Islands have an excess of 650 mm and 150 mm of rainfall during last year compared to the average respectively while the Central Islands experiencing average rainfall. The sea surface temperature around Maldives was 1 0C above normal. This is extremely warm

Predictions: IMD GFS model predicts up to 10 mm of daily rainfall in the central and southern islands on November 4th and 5th. On the 6th, rainfall up to 10 mm is expected in the entire country. On the 7th, rainfall up to 20 mm of is expected in the northern and central islands and up to 10 mmz in the southern islands.   Long Range Weather prediction models simulations anticipate total rainfall up to 75 mm for the northern and central parts next week.
