Climatology

Historical, current and forecast climate conditions around the country.

Climate Analysis
Rainfall and temperature time series (1981-2016) reconstructed from station observations and remote sensing proxies. This interface allows users to view rainfall, maximum and minimum temperature climatologies and anomalies.

The Maproom explores historical daily precipitation by calculating simple seasonal statistics.
Climate Monitoring
This page displays dekadal (approximately 10-day) rainfall amounts over the country. The default map shows rainfall totals for the most recently available dekad, but totals for previous dekads can be displayed as well.
The Standardized Precipitation Index is an indicator of extreme rainfall events, whether they are drought or excess rainfall.

Climate Forecast
This map shows the historical probability of seasonal average rainfall falling within the upper (wet), middle (normal), or bottom (dry) one-third ("tercile") of the 1981-current historical distribution in Senegal given the state of ENSO (El Niño, Neutral, La Niña) during that same season.
