*African Monsoons:*

Weekly total rainfall exceeded 100mm over parts of Cameroon, western CAR,
eastern Sudan and western Ethiopia.

Below-average rainfall was observed over much of Senegal, and portions of
the Gulf of Guinea and central Africa countries.

Week-1 outlooks call for an increased chance for below-average rainfall
over parts of southern Mauritania, Senegal, southern cote d’Ivoire,
southern Ghana, southern Togo, southern Benin, and northeastern Angola and
southern DRC. In contrast, there is an increased chance for above-average
rainfall over Guinea, Sierra Leone, southeastern Mali, western Liberia,
northern Cote d’Ivoire, and western Ethiopia.

*Asian-Australian Monsoons:*

Not available for this week.

*South American Monsoons:*

Long-term rainfall deficits are present over the Amazon Basin, Brazilian
Plateau and southern Brazil.

During the last 7 days, below-average precipitation was observed over areas
in central and southern Brazil.  Above-average precipitation was observed
over portions of northern Peru, eastern Argentina, Uruguay and the extreme
southern Brazil.

For Days 1-7 (18-24 September 2017), below-average precipitation is
predicted over much of central and southern Brazil, as well as southern
Chile.  Above-average precipitation is predicted for the extreme southern
Brazil, northern Uruguay, central Bolivia, Ecuador and much of Peru.
