Somalia Rainfall Forecast – Issued: 12 April 2019

Most parts of Somalia will remain dry for the next three days, apart from few areas in Puntland and Somaliland where light showers are expected (Map 1). The rains are expected to spread further in space and time in both Puntland and Somaliland as the week progresses (Map 2). This will come as a relief to the drought stricken regions especially for pasture regrowth and replenishment of ground water sources. The upper parts of Ethiopian highlands are also expected to receive moderate rains in the same period, this will lead to an increase of water levels along the Juba and Shabelle Rivers inside Somalia.

The Central and Southern regions will remain dry during the period in review. This will further exacerbate the existing dry conditions in the areas.
