Consensus Outlook for the Southwest Monsoon (JJA 2014) Rainfall and Temperature over Southeast Asia
For the upcoming Southwest Summer Monsoon (June-July-August) season, normal to below normal rainfall is expected over most of the southern parts of Southeast Asia as well as the central and eastern parts of Mainland Southeast Asia. Elsewhere, generally normal to above normal rainfall can be expected.
Above normal temperature conditions are generally expected over the whole Southeast Asia region for summer monsoon, with higher probabilities of above normal temperature over the southern parts of the region.
The Organising Secretariat would like to thank USAid for funding ASEANCOF-3, along with the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) for their support of this event.
