Abstract
The small rainfall recovery observed over the Sahel, concomitant with a regional climate warming, conceals some drought features that exacerbate food security. The new rainfall features include false start and early cessation of rainy seasons, increased frequency of intense daily rainfall, increasing number of hot nights and warm days and a decreasing trend in diurnal temperature range. Here, we explain these mixed dry/wet seasonal rainfall features which are called hybrid rainy seasons by delving into observed data consensus on the reduction in rainfall amount, its spatial coverage, timing and erratic distribution of events, and other atmospheric variables crucial in agro-climatic monitoring and seasonal forecasting. Further composite investigations of seasonal droughts, oceans warming and the regional atmospheric circulation nexus reveal that the low-to-mid-level atmospheric winds pattern, often stationary relative to either strong or neutral El-Niño-Southern-Oscillations  drought patterns, associates to basin warmings in the North Atlantic and the Mediterranean Sea to trigger hybrid rainy seasons in the Sahel. More challenging to rain-fed farming systems, our results suggest that these new rainfall conditions will most likely be sustained by global warming, reshaping thereby our understanding of food insecurity in this region.

the something that it was of that all the things published and in the interests of I read the the and these things are followed by an overview about 16 years with the use of
Thailand as you know this shit and if you know he's trying and if you have all these way from there
in the to now
recordings and you have to things should where there was something
about you after before the
seventies maybe even during this after the seventies and now it's coming up on grows to here in the event where we show that this 1st period these characterize their new features including falls on the of the the stations and once you the distribution of low and the
all of in of the also at the the mission and it's in use world are trying words which the this had cover areas during the if you want to find answer please reading the title the new world the in the middle of the of SPIE
