Dry spell is over! Weatherman says in its forecast
In its seven-day weather forecast, Kenya Meteorological Department says that most parts of the country will receive rain in this month of November.
The weatherman said that rainfall is expected over several parts of the country, including the Highlands West of the Rift Valley, the Lake Victoria Basin, the Central and South Rift Valley, the Highlands East of the Rift Valley, the Coast, and Northeastern Kenya.
Mornings are likely to be generally sunny in the Highlands West of the Rift Valley, the Lake Victoria Basin, and the Central and South Rift Valley, and the afternoon showers and thunderstorms are likely to occur over a few places, occasionally spreading to several places.
Also, night showers are expected over a few places in Kisii, Nyamira, Trans-Nzoia, Uasin-Gishu, Elgeyo-Marakwet, Nandi, Kericho, Bomet, Kakamega, Vihiga, Bungoma, West-Pokot, Siaya, Kisumu, Homabay, Busia, Migori, Baringo, Nakuru and Narok counties.
In Turkana, and Samburu counties, days are expected to be generally sunny and nights partly cloudy. However, occasional night showers may occur over a few places during the forecast period’s first half.
At times accompanied by rains, cloudiness is expected in the morning, giving way to sunny intervals in Nyandarua, Nyeri, Kirinyaga, Murang’a, Kiambu, Meru, Embu, Tharaka, and Nairobi counties.
The weather in Machakos, Kitui, Makueni, Kajiado, and Taita Taveta counties is likely to be generally sunny, though rains may occur over a few places. Occasional afternoon and night showers are likely to occur over a few places.
During the forecast period, the average daytime temperatures are likely to be low 20oC over the Highlands East of the Rift Valley, while the average night-time temperatures are likely to be high over Northeastern and Northwestern Kenya as well as the Coast.
This is expected to be a relief to the country.
