Kenyans living at the coast should brace for heavy rainfall starting Tuesday, the Meteorological Department has said.
The rains of above 70 millimetres, the department’s second-highest measurement grouping, are expected to hit parts of Taita Taveta, Kilifi, Lamu, Kwale and Kitui counties.
This is expected to last through to April 6, 2020.
There will be moderate rains in parts of Tana River, Kajiado, Narok, Kirinyaga, Makueni, Mombasa and Kitui counties.
According to the weatherman, this will cumulatively be between 20-70 mm.
"Light cumulatively rainfall below 20 mm expected the rest parts of Kenya," the Stella Aura-led department said.
Marsabit, Turkana, Baringo and some parts of Samburu are expected to remain dry during the period under review.
Temperatures in northwest, north-eastern, eastern and coastal counties will average above 30 degrees Celsius.
