From July to September 2022, rainfall across Indonesia was higher than the thirty-year long-term average. This was the result of the early start of the rainy season in combination with the persisting La Niña phenomenon. The phenomenon is still ongoing and forecasted to continue, despite with a weaker effect until the end of the year. The current La Niña phenomenon has continued to prevail for three consecutive years since 2020 (Triple-dip La Niña). Increased rainfall is expected in Jawa, Nusa Tenggara, Sulawesi, Maluku and Papua. Rainfall in Sumatera and Kalimantan is expected to be normal, while below normal rainfall is predicted in Sumatera Barat, Riau, Kalimantan Barat and Kalimantan Tengah.
