Summary for the upcoming 3-month period, February 2019 to April 2019: “With weak El Niño conditions forecast to persist, chances of drought and recurrent dry spells during the peak of the dry season are increased. That said, region-wide, extreme drought is unlikely. Wet days and wet spells are expected to become least frequent by March, while the chance for extreme wet spells tends to re-emerge in April, especially in the Greater Antilles, with some concern for flash flood potential arising then. Temperatures will be seasonably comfortable at least through February, and start rising thereafter. “
