These climate systems include the influence of sea surface temperature anomalies over the tropical pacific, Atlantic and Indian oceans evolution of rainfall in the GHA region.


The ministry of Disaster Preparedness is also expected to be on the alert of the likely disasters that are yet to hit the country.


Addressing a press briefing at media centre, the Minister of State for Environment, Munaaba Flavia Nabugere, advised farmers to make the best use of the seasonal rains because there are high chances of experiencing food shortage in June to August as determined by the scientists.


Munaaba also hinted on the likely floods that might face the low lying areas, especially Teso region and the parts of Northern Uganda that is likely to lead to loss of lives and property, and disastrous landslides in mountainous areas, especially Mt. Elgon.


The Minister also asked the ministry of Health to conduct increased disease surveillances because of the unexpected upsurge of heavy rain related epidemics.


Munaaba says that her ministry has rolled out a plan that will demarcate all those who are using swamps as a way of restoring nature and reducing further destruction of the ozone layer, especially those who acquired the land after 1995.


Because they are most likely to have their titles cancelled.


This comes after the observation by meteorologists that the physical conditions are likely to influence the weather conditions of Uganda and the rest of the region.


All the inputs were combined using expert analysis and interpretation to obtain forecast probabilities for the evolution of regional rainfall during the period March to May 2014.
