Today´s Average Water Levels:

in Dry-Zone N. East

Guess work

Water levels stabilized and slightly dropping in our fisheries in the Dry-Zone N.East. The Kabori and Upper Jufaris are a bit below the perfect level and the Itapará is a bit above it, levels are dropping. All fisheries are expected to maintain good fishing conditions in the coming weeks.
Blue dots represent water level monitoring stations where levels are rising and yellow dots where levels are dropping. Our area of interest is between Barcelos and Caracarai.
Above the rainfall forecast for Barcelos in the area of influence of the Jufaris and Kabori, below Rorainopolis in the area of influence of the Itapará river, both confirming that the dropping tendency should prevail.

      The quarterly rainfall for Jan, Feb, Mar shows that we should not expect any significant rain episodes, on the contrary levels will be below the normal historical levels. A mild El Niño impact is expected on this regard.

      Water level measurements starting fresh this month for 2019 are within the historical parameters (see below) Note: red line are 2019 water levels, the light blue strip is the 15 to 85% probability, the dotted line is the median and the yellow line is the historic minimum.
