    • Well-below average rainfall has been received in most parts of the region for the October through early January period

    • Rainfall improved in parts of December through early and mid-January in some central areas, while erratic rains continued in the south

    • Extreme high temperatures affected many parts of the region in December

    • Seasonal forecasts for reduced rainfall continue to raise concerns of potentially negative impacts on crop harvests

    FEWS NET’s Seasonal Monitor reports are produced for Central America and the Caribbean, West Africa, East Africa, Central Asia, and Somalia every 10-to-30 days during the region’s respective rainy season(s). Seasonal Monitors report updates on weather events (e.g., rainfall patterns) and associated impacts on ground conditions (e.g., cropping conditions, pasture and water availability), as well as the short-term rainfall forecast.
