Southern Africa: Rainfall season (October 2020 - March 2021) outlook!
According to the findings of the Twenty Fourth Annual Southern Africa Regional Climate Outlook Forum (SARCOF-24), most member states of the Southern African Development Community (SADC)* are likely to receive normal to above-normal rainfall for most of the period from October 2020 to December 2020. Normal to below-normal rains are expected for north-western Angola, the bulk of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), most of eastern Madagascar, northern Malawi, northern Mozambique, Seychelles, Tanzania and north-eastern Zambia. The period from January 2021 to March 2021 is expected to have normal to above normal rainfall for the entire SADC region. The period from October to March is the main rainfall season over most of Southern Africa.
