As the month of July nears closing the chapter of its first week, the Kenya Meteorological Department (KMD) which is specially tasked to disseminate weather and climatic conditions in the country, now warns of dryness in most parts of the country. This, according to the department, will give time for majority of crops that were planted during the first weeks of the March-April-May rainfall season to be harvested.
Despite predicting dry conditions in most parts of the nation, the department however maintains that a few areas in the Highlands West of the Rift Valley, the Coast, the Highlands East of the Rift Valley and North-western Kenya may receive light to moderate rainfall in the next five days. Going by the previous updates, most parts of the Highlands West and East of the Rift Valley together with Central and South of the Rift Valley have been continuously predicted to be receiving rainfall almost on a weekly basis.
In addition, the department gives insight that Intermittent cold and cloudy conditions are expected over the Highlands East of the Rift Valley, as well as over some parts of the South-eastern lowlands which primarily consist of the Ukambani bloc. This does not exclude the Highlands West of the Rift Valley as well as the Central and South Rift Valley.
Lastly, the residents staying over the Coast, the South-eastern lowlands and North-eastern Kenya are all warned to prepare for strong southerly winds with speeds exceeding 25knots (12.9m/s). Similarly, this is expected to dominate the atmospheric conditions of the mentioned places in the next five days starting tomorrow until 9th July 2022.
