Special Bulletin, February 1st, 2010


Palau Flag Republic of Palau: Rainfall across the Republic of Palau has been abundant over the past three months. The 2009 annual and 2009 4th Quarter rainfall totals were both above normal at the Koror WSO.

ENSO-Critical Period Climate Outlook (February through June 2010): The Republic of Palau typically has a short dry season from February to April, during which average monthly rainfall values fall below 10 inches. A response to a strong El Niño can reduce rainfall during the dry season, and extend dry conditions into May and June. Thereafter, rainfall throughout the Republic of Palau should recover to near normal.
