Despite that, Kenyans living in Central Highlands, Western Kenya and the Rift Valley would receive intermittent and isolated heavy rainfall events.

Areas that will receive cold temperatures include; Nakuru, some parts of Nairobi, Machakos, Murang’a and Nyeri. 

Central Islands of Kirinyaga, Meru and Tharaka Nithi will also receive temperatures dropping below 10°C. 

The hottest regions will be in Daddab, Lamu, and Kilifi as well as some parts of Kwale County. 

According to Kenya Met, floods have subsidised with periods of relative dry spells expected in most parts of the country including those that had flooded as recently as last week. 

For example, Mandera County which had seen over 500 households displaced by floods is not expected to receive any rainfall.

Kajiado and Machakos which had also witnessed flooding will receive rainfall of less than 20 millimetres. 

Additionally, Homa Bay which had seen flooding after Lake Victoria burst its banks is also expected to receive less than 1 millimetre of rainfall.
