LOW RAIN­FALL

The Star (Kenya) - - News General -

Low rain­fall is ex­pected this month, even though it is the peak month for the Oc­to­ber-De­cem­ber short rains sea­son, the weath­er­man has said.

Ac­cord­ing to the Novem­ber weather out­look, most parts of the coun­try are likely to ex­pe­ri­ence de­pressed rain­fall, es­pe­cially in the North­west­ern, North­east­ern and the Coastal re­gions.

Bu­sia, El­doret, Embu, Kakamega, Keri­cho, Ki­ambu, Kisii, Kisumu, Ki­tale, Meru, Mu­rang’a, Nairobi, Naivasha, Nakuru, Nandi, Narok and Ny­eri are likely to ex­pe­ri­ence de­pressed rain­fall. Machakos, Makindu, Taveta and Voi will re­ceive near nor­mal to be­low nor­mal rain.

Act­ing di­rec­tor of me­te­o­ro­log­i­cal ser­vices Peter Am­benje said Gar­bat­ulla, Garissa, Kil­ifi, Lamu, Malindi, Man­dera, Marsabit, Mom­basa, Moyale, Mt­wapa, Wa­jir and North­west­ern Kenya – Lod­war, Lo­ki­chog­gio, Lok­i­taung – are likely to re­ceive be­low nor­mal rain­fall. “De­spite the fore­cast de­pressed rain­fall, a few storms may still oc­cur dur­ing the month. This is likely to cause flash floods in iso­lated ar­eas,” he said in a state­ment.
