Nowcasting in West Africa Portal (part of the Hydrology in West Africa Portal)

The purpose of the Nowcasting in West Africa Portal is to enable forecasters in West Africa to provide communities with earlier and more reliable warnings about large storms.

The portal aims to provide rapidly updated probability nowcasts of convective structures (cores) occurring over the next 6 hours during the summer monsoon (July to September) in West Africa.

A nowcast of Flood Risk over Dakar is also provided for 22 communes across Dakar.
