Outlooks/ Monitors

Caribbean Drought and Precipitation Monitoring Network (CDPMN)

Creating a culture of rainfall monitoring to combat the negative impacts of climate extremes and future climate change.

Precipitation Outlook

Rainfall in March-April-May in the Caribbean is likely to be above- to normal from the US Caribbean Territories westward as well as in Trinidad and Tobago. Note that rainfall is hardly predictable at present in other areas.

Numerical Weather Predictions

Numerical weather prediction tools are being used increasingly to support weather forecasts over multiple days. CIMH is providing outputs from its regional implementations of MM5V3 and WRF to National Meteorological Services in the Caribbean to support their extended forecasts. In addition, CIMH is providing territorial WRF and hydrological model outputs.

Regional Outputs: WRF | MM5


Please note that the MM5 Models will be unavailable until further notice.
