Above normal rain forecasted until September in Eritrea
Rainfall in Asmara
The global climate centres under the coordination of the World Meteorological Organisation has provided a forecast that there is an increased likelihood of an above normal rainfall over most parts of Eritrea.
Eritrea is currently an arid to semi-arid agricultural and agro-pastoralist country. Agricultural production, which comprises the majority of the national economy, is constrained mostly by the availability of water resources either as rainfall, runoff or groundwater.
The geographic variations in Eritrean rainfall distributions are extreme, with areas of 1000 mm annual rainfall and 200 mm of annual rainfall separated by as little as 15 kilometers. Most of this precipitation falls in the rainy season from July to September. During these months, heavy downpours transform Eritrea's over 500 reservoir dams dotted all of the country to their maximum capacity.
