Summary for the upcoming 3-month period, May to July 2019: “Drought is expected to continue into the early wet season in areas currently affected, as weak El Niño conditions are forecast to persist. Recurrent dry spells are forecasted, except for the Windward Islands and Guianas. More frequent wet spells are expected throughout the region (except in the ABC Islands). These spells may bring some level of drought relief, but also concern for flooding potential. Heat sensation will increase. Heatwaves may occur from May in Belize and Trinidad & Tobago, and elsewhere from July onwards.”
