Bulletin 3 November 2014

This is the last OPIDIN bulletin of 2014. The water level in Mopti has reached its peak (596 cm) on 23 October. The flood predictions of OPIDIN since 1 August have varied not much. In August, we predicted a peak flood level of 550-600 cm. In early September we gradually downgraded the prediction to about 550 cm, but in the following weeks the prediction was gradually upgraded to 580-600 cm and still later to 590-600 cm. Hence, the forecasting during the last three months was usually close to the actually observed peak flood level in Mopti, but was 40-50 cm too low in the first half of September.

Bulletin 13 October 2014

Based on the information available on 13 October, we predict that the flood in 2014 will be 35 cm lower than in 2012 or 2013 and 50 cm higher than in 2011. The prediction of the flood level certain.

Bulletin 5 October 2014

Based on the information available on 5 October, we predict that the flood in 2014 will be 35-40 cm lower than in 2012 or 2013 and 45-50 cm higher than in 2011. The prediction of the flood level is now nearly certain.

Bulletin 29 September 2014

Based on the information available on 29 September, we predict that the flood in 2014 will be 35 cm lower than in 2012 or 2013 and 50 cm higher than in 2011. The prediction of the flood level is now nearly certain.

Bulletin 21 August 2014

Based on the information available on 21 August, we predict that the flood in 2014 will be a bit lower than 2012 or 2013and half a meter higher than 2011. The prediction of the flood level is not fully certain, however. Depending on the rainfall in the Upper Niger during the coming fortnight, the flood can be still a bit higher or lower than predicted now.

Based on the information available on 14 August, we predict that the flood in 2014 will be lower than 2012 or 2013 but higher than 2011. The prediction of the flood level is not yet certain, however. Depending on the rainfall in the Upper Niger during the coming fortnight, the flood can be still a bit higher or lower than predicted now.

Bulletin 7 August 2014

Based on the information available on 7 August, we predict that the flood in 2014 will be lower than in 2012 or 2013 but higher than in 2011. The prediction of the flood level is still uncertain, however. Much can change depending on the rainfall in the Upper Niger during the coming weeks.

Bulletin 1 August 2014

Bulletin 11 October 2013

Based on the information available on 11 October, we predict that the flood of 2013 will be as high as in 2007, 2008 and 2009 and nearly as high as in 2010 and 2012. The prediction of the peak flood has not changed any more since 3 September and will not change anymore.

Bulletin 11 September 2013

Based on the information available on 11 September, we predict that the flood of 2013 will be as high as in 2010 and 2012 and possibly even a bit higher since the rainfall in the Upper Niger Basin in the first ten days of September was 30% above average and in the Basin of the Bani River even 80% above the average (averages calculated for the years 1996-2012).

Bulletin 1 September 2013

Based on the information available on 1 September, we predict that the flood of 2013 will be about as high as in 2010 and 2012. The prediction of the flood level is still not fully certain, however. It depends on the rainfall in the Upper Niger Basin during the coming week to what degree the peak flood level will deviate from the present prediction.

Bulletin 21 August 2013

Based on the information available on 21 August, we predict that the flood of 2013 will be not as high as in 2010 and 2012 but not as low as in 2011. The prediction of the flood level is still uncertain, however. Much can change depending on the rainfall in the Upper Niger Basin during the coming week.

Thus, the flood level will deviate not much from the years 2006-2010. The prediction of the flood level is still uncertain, however. Much can change depending on the rainfall in the Upper Niger during the coming weeks.
