For sure,this will affect millons of people in that part of the world with starvation,but the bigger question is if this present drought will be a factor down the road in terms of less tropical waves and a below average Cape Verde season. Time will tell about that.

Quoting DDR:
Isn't April the time on year when we start to see convection flare-ups in west Africa?


That is right as things start to get moist there. Let's see what happens.

Here is the latest news from the Sahel,where many people still are starving.

it would be very pleasing to have a category 5 come rolling across the atlantic, and turn out to sea 'fore hittin anything
Quoting Tropicsweatherpr:
Let's see if by April going into May,the weak wave train starts rolling as it occurs every year or on the contrary,is a slow wave activity.

Is also my favorite area for the same reason as I like longtrackers that are fish.


yeah, me too. I prefer watching a big system with a large eye, rather then a tiny spsystem with a small eye. them small systems more prone to windshear and dry air problems then the biggins are :D

Hopefully it wont effect the Cape Verde season very much....:D. A Cape Verde hurricane is my favorite type of system

No sign of the drought in West Africa going away anytime soon.

Sad. And for awhile it had looked like the Sahel was recovering from the severe droughts of the 70's and 80's through reforestation and better farming practices. Hopefully those poor people go through less suffering than their neighbors to the south east in Kenya and Somalia.
