Rainfall surged into Chad, bringing some parts of the country, particularly the marginal areas, into positive rainfall totals for the season. Dryness, however, remains a problem in Chad, and nearby countries. Rains continue in Ethiopia, as the country is on track for a reasonable season. Far west Africa is also having an average wet season, although the rains have been slightly slow moving into Senegal. Precipitation continues in Morocco and Algeria, with trying further east.
Ethiopia, Morocco and Algeria continued to see seasonal rainfall. Tunisia was dry this week, although a week or so break is not unusual this time of year. Seasonal dryness continues in civil war torn Libya. Next week will be dry across all of north Africa, with only a few light showers possible.
