He said the rainfall pattern in most parts of Nigeria was likely to be similar to that of 2012.
``However, some areas in the North-western parts of the country, which also fall within the catchment area of River Niger, the
total rainfall predicted for 2013 may exceed that of 2012.
``Rainfall for 2013 is predicted to be normal over large areas of the country. The expected changes in the annual rainfall are
well below normal in Abeokuta and above normal over Ibadan and Yelwa areas.
``The predicted rainfall for the Northwest areas of Sokoto , Kebbi, Niger, Kwara and environs is likely to be above normal in
comparison to 2012,’’ he said.
Anuforom advised relevant authorities to use NIMET's updates issued regularly to control possible adverse impacts.
He said the forecast was not automatic as the predictions could change due to climate change.
He explained that the early release of the forecast was to create good lead-time for adequate preparation against risks and
hazards associated with weather and climate extremes.
