#MiddleEastRainEvent Update

Forecasts for the next phase in the ME Rain Event currently underway have changed considerably due in large part to the Storms in the Eastern Mediterranean not behaving as initially expected.

Here we see this morning's storm activity over Iraq.
Originally the storm over near the middle of this animation was forecast to move south over the North African coast and dissipate. How this storm evolved was always the key uncertainty in this event, and the revision in its path has significantly altered the impact of the event.
- Rainfall forecast over the Levant has increased
- Rainfall in the major (formerly dangerous) event over central Saudi has moderated.
- The event has slowed down - Forecast to end now on 22nd Jan rather than the 19th.
