The World Meteorological Organization together with the Kenya Meteorological Department today released a prediction of very wet weather in the next seventy-two hours for the central belt of Eastern Africa.
Read together with the satellite images for March 2021 this means that the Western half of Kenya will be under a heavy deluge of rainfall throughout this weekend.
In Nairobi, the Meteorological Department on Friday 2 April predicted above-normal hurricane conditions for Turkana, Trans-Nzoia, Kakamega, Uasin Gishu, Kisumu, Siaya, Migori, and Kisii Counties. Parts of Narok, Nairobi, and Nakuru will also experience torrential downpours.
Nakuru County is one of the five counties in Kenya under lockdown and the rains will certainly be adding on the general difficulties. Motorists are advised to be extra vigilant as the cloud cover through Nairobi, Nakuru, and parts of North-rift indicate accompanying smog.
Although the rainfall will be rather concentrated over the weekend there are no signs of letting off as the whole of April will be caught in intermittent showers and thunderstorms. The virulence of the hurricane will ease off in early May although the weatherman is not yet sure whether we may not be having one of the lengthiest seasons of rainfall.
