The IGAD Climate Centre has predicted warmer-than-usual conditions over most parts of South Sudan in March 2023.

The regional body’s Climate Prediction and Applications Centre, or ICPAC, also said normal temperatures are likely to be recorded over eastern parts of the country.

In its rainfall probabilistic forecast for March 2023, ICPAC also predicted drier than usual conditions over central to southwestern South Sudan this month.

It added that moderate conditions are expected over much of the eastern parts of the country, while wetter than average conditions are expected over a small area in the eastern parts.

Regionally, IGAD indicates drier than usual rainfall over eastern Ethiopia, Eritrea, Djibouti, Somalia, eastern Kenya and western Uganda, and Rwanda.

In addition, wetter than usual rainfall is indicated over cross-border areas of Ethiopia, north-western Kenya, and a few places in Tanzania.

On the other hand, warmer than average temperatures are expected all over the region with the highest probabilities indicated over Ethiopia, Kenya, and southern areas of Tanzania.

ICPAC is a Climate Centre accredited by the World Meteorological Organization that provides climate services to 11 East African countries.

The Centre aims at creating resilience in a region deeply affected by climate change and extreme weather.

It works to improve regional climate predictions and the forecasting capacity of member states, and to strengthen capacities in severe weather early warning systems, numerical weather prediction, computing and power storage, data collection and sharing.
