Today in Chad is hot for mid-May. Temperatures are forecast to reach 106F degrees today. Considering that they are 6 hours ahead of us here in Chicago, their day is already cooling off from the peak of the day. Ideally there is enough rains by this time to keep the temps closer to and under 100F. The rains are starting to turn the land a little green, but it is still a little while before people start planting in their fields. They want to make sure that the rains are consistent enough before laying the seeds down. Last year it did not rain very well in some areas leaving many short on food. But we also don’t want too much rain to come which can drown out the crops yielding little to no harvest for another season.
