Quarterly Climate Impacts and Outlook for the Pacific Region for December 2023–February 2024. Dated March 2024.

For the Dec-Feb (DJF) period, above-normal rainfall was observed across American Samoa, while drier-than-normal conditions prevailed across much of FSM, RMI, Mariana Islands, and the Hawaiian Islands. For the DJF period, moderate to severe drought conditions (D1-D2) were observed in areas of USAPI including Guam, CNMI (Rota, Saipan), FSM (Pingelap, Woleai, Ulithi, Yap Proper), and RMI (Kwajalein, Wotje).

NOAA’s Regional Climate Services Program creates 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
