Weather outlook for rainfall and temperature

TTMS presented the 2024 Dry Season Outlook at the Fifteenth National Climate Outlook Forum on Tuesday, December 12, 2023.

Notably, the majority of the country is expected to get a percentage of average dry season rainfall totals ranging between 61 per cent and 102 per cent.

The outlook indicates relatively moderate to high probabilities of 31% – 98% across most areas for seasonal rainfall to exceed the national dry season with an average of 412.0mm.

Likely impact

Recent rainfall in December has already positively influenced the surface of water flows, groundwater recharge and river levels.

However, the first half of the dry season has negatively impacted the surface and groundwater recharge rates and stream flow rates.

It is to be noted that there will be a chance for bush, forest and landfill fire potential, especially from early January to March 2024. It will be reached less in April and May 2024.

Moreover, this will reduce the air quality and negatively affect individuals with existing respiratory and other ailments.
