Weather forecast for Manicoré

The above diagram depicts the rainfall probability for three months. The pale orange zone in the North forecasts a probability of about 45% that the rainfall will be below the historical mean. Therefore there will be a chance, that the water cycle develops earlier in the coming months in the North of Manaus (Dry-Zones N.West and N.East).




  All other Regions have high water levels and are not yet open for this 2017 – 2018 season. This illustrates de importance of mobility within these 4 distinct Dry Zone areas. All other Regions graphic water levels are as follows:
