Guess work

Water levels are slowly dropping in our fisheries in the Dry-Zone N.East. The Kabori and Upper Jufaris are a bit low but very fishable and the Itapará  is dropping a bit from its ideal point. Practically nil rainfall forecast for Rorainopolis in the area of influence of the Itapara confirms this tendency. All fisheries are expected to maintain good fishing conditions in the coming week.

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 continues in the coming days.

Diagram appearing below shows that in our area of interest no significant rainfall anomaly is expected in the coming fortnight

Find below the quarterly rainfall for Feb, Mar, Apr showing that we should not expect any significant rain episodes, in our area of interest,  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)
