Counties in North Eastern are expected to receive average rainfall during the start of the month of December.

The Kenya Meteorological Department on Tuesday said some parts of the region will experience near-average rainfall during the first week of December.

In a statement signed by director Stella Aura, the month of December will likely be general dry in Garissa, Wajir, Mandera, Marsabit, Moyale and Isiolo counties after the second week.

“North Eastern areas are expected to experience their cessation during the fourth week of November to first week of December. The month of December is likely to be generally dry over the extreme northern parts of the region,” read the notice.

Ms Aura said foliage and pasture conditions in these pastoral areas are expected to slightly diminish due to expected sunny and dry conditions for most of December.

Other areas to experience dry conditions are North Western region which include Lodwar, Lokichoggio and Lokitaung.

Ms Aura said Nakuru, Kericho, Nandi, Kakamega, Eldoret, Kitale, Narok and Kajiado will experience heavy rainfall during the month.

“Most parts of Nyanza, Western, North Rift counties and Central highlands including Nairobi are expected to receive rains which will cease during the third to fourth week of December. Narok County is likely to experience rainfall up to the end of December and into early January 2019,” said the weatherman.

Makindu, Nairobi, Voi, Taita Taveta, Mombasa, Kwale, Mtwapa, Kilifi, Malindi, Lamu, Nyeri, Murang'a, Nyandarua, Kiambu, Embu, Meru, Nanyuki and Machakos counties are likely to receive near-average rainfall with some areas receiving slightly enhanced rainfall.

The department further said that water levels in the Seven Forks and Turkwel hydroelectric power generating dams are likely to be maintained due to the average rainfall expected in the catchment areas.
