The weekly PowerPoint presentations summarizing the recent variability of
the global monsoon systems have been updated on the CPC Global Monsoons



*African Monsoons: *

Weekly total rainfall exceeded 100mm over northern Benin, parts of Nigeria,
southwestern Cameroon and northern Ethiopia.

Below-average rainfall was observed over portions of the Gulf of Guinea and
Central Africa countries.

Week-1 outlooks call for an increased chance for below-average rainfall
over much of Senegal, southern Mauritania and central Mali. In contrast,
there is an increased chance for above-average rainfall over much of
Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia, western Cote d’Ivoire, and southern Chad,
southern Sudan, western Eritrea and western Ethiopia.

*Asian-Australian Monsoons:*

For the past 90 days, below normal rainfall deficits remain in general over
parts of central and peninsular India, east central China, Koreas, Japan,
Papua New Guinea, and large parts of Australia. During same period,
rainfall excess remain over central western and  northeastern India,
Bangladesh, Burma, and many southeast Asian countries bordering South China
Sea area including large parts of Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, the
Philippines and Indonesia. For the past 30 days,  below normal rainfall
situation is noted over interior India in a north-south oriented pattern,
east central China, Korea and parts of Japan, even though, last week, TS
Noru provided some well needed rain to Japan.    Elsewhere, the rainfall is
mostly above normal to normal.

In this past week, the observed rainfall amounts has been notably deficient
over large area of west central India, coastal southern China, Thailand,
Cambodia, Vietnam, southern Vietnam, the Philippines and Papua New Guinea.
The India Met. Dept, (IMD) is reporting that the monsoon, so far since the
beginning of June, is about 3% below the long term mean for India as a
whole.  In the next couple of weeks the NCEP GFS model continues to predict
below normal rainfall over most of central and north central India and
southeast Asian countries in the south China sea region.

*North American Monsoons:*

Not Available this week.
