Explore States

All data is referenced from NiMet.

The Nigerian Meteorological Agency uses ENSO status in combination with historical weather data, soil information, crop information and farm management practices incorporated into a Decision Support System for Agro Technology Transfer (DSSAT) crop model to predict seasonal rainfall every year.

In the 2020 Seasonal Rainfall Prediction (SRP), the same methodology is employed while monitoring the role played by MJO and IOD in modulating rainfall in the country during the season.

- ENSO: El-Nino Southern Oscillation
- MJO: Madden Julian Oscillation
- IOD: Indian Ocean Dipole
