I spent part of the summers of 2014 and 2015 in Dakar, Senegal working with colleagues to research aspects of seasonal forecasting in the region and the application of this information to local climate services. The following series of blog posts represent my reflections on the then current state of the 2015 seasonal forecast during the development of an historic El Niño event.
