Depressed rainfall is expected over most of the eastern sector of the country during March-May 2015 “Long-Rains” Season. However, rainfall over most parts of western and central counties is likely to be near-average with a slight tendency to above-average over several parts of western Kenya.
Most of the eastern sector of the country is likely to remain generally dry during the month of March. Much of the seasonal rainfall is likely to be recorded in April and the first half of May.
The onset of the seasonal rainfall is expected during the second to third week of March over most parts of western Kenya. The better part of the eastern sector, especially Northeastern Kenya is likely to experience the onset during the first to second week of April.
