weatherApril marks the peak of the “Long Rains” season. During the first half of the month highly depressed rainfall was recorded over most parts of the country including the western and central highlands. 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. Up to 27th April, only Kisii, Makindu and Machakos had exceeded 75% of their LTMs with 86.1%, 93.5% and 166.9% respectively. 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.
