It looks like rain

A big relief for many of the nordestinos were some rainy days in the middle of January, as can be read in this post: http://fatosefotosdacaatinga.blogspot.de/2013/01/as-chuvas-voltaram-ao-sertao-de.html

The pictures included in the post show that some ground holes were filled again, and the cattle could snack on the fancy flowers of Tabebuia spongosa.

But observing the map of precipitation in January for the entire state of Pernambuco you will find some gaps with rainfall close to zero. Itacuruba, for instance, has a record of only 9,2mm for this month. Let’s hope for some more rain, and that, like in the article referred to above, the experts are mistaken when giving only bad news and forecasting a 2013 similar to 2012.
