Document Description

Quarterly Climate Impacts and Outlook for the Pacific Region for December 2021–February 2022. Dated March 2022.

For the December–February period, precipitation was below normal in Guam, areas of Federated States of Micronesia (FSM), and in northern Republic of the Marshall Islands. Conversely, near- to above-normal rainfall was observed in Palau, Saipan, western/southern FSM, and in American Samoa. In early December, a kona low brought very wet conditions to the Hawaiian Islands before transitioning to abnormally dry conditions in January and February.

NOAA’s Regional Climate Services Program created these Climate Outlooks to inform the public about recent climate impacts within their respective regions. Each regional report contains easy-to-understand language, and anyone can access them through the U.S. Drought Portal
