In the second half, however most stations reported significant increases in rainfall characteristic of the peak month. However, these amounts were still way below their LTMs. Most meteorological stations in the country recorded rainfall that was well below 75 percent of their Long-Term Means (LTMs) for the month.

The stations with the lowest LTMS for the month were Lodwar (2.8%), Lamu (7.9%), Narok (12.1%), Laikipia (19%), Marsabit (19.2%), and Nyahururu (19.5%) that recorded less than 20 percent of their April LTMs.
