Climate

Historical, current and forecast climate conditions around the country.

Climate Analysis
Rainfall (1981-2018) and temperature (1974-2017) time series reconstructed from station observations and remote sensing proxies. This interface allows users to view rainfall, maximum and minimum temperature climatologies and anomalies. Climatologies is defined over the period 1981-2010.

Climate Monitoring
This page displays dekadal (approximately 10-day) rainfall amounts over the country. The default map shows rainfall totals for the most recently available dekad, but totals for previous dekads can be displayed as well.
Climate Forecast
This map shows the historical probability (given in percentile) of seasonal average monthly rainfall falling within the upper (wet), middle (normal), or bottom (dry) one-third ("tercile") of the historical distribution (1981 to last date available) in Kenya given the state of ENSO (El Niño, Neutral, La Niña) during that same season.
This map shows the historical probability (given in percentile) of seasonal average monthly minimum or maximum temperature falling within the upper (hot), middle (normal), or bottom (cold) one-third ("tercile") of the 1981-2015 historical distribution in Kenya given the state of ENSO (El Niño, Neutral, La Niña) during the same season.
This map shows the historical probability (given in percentile) of seasonal average monthly rainfall falling within the upper (wet), middle (normal), or bottom (dry) one-third ("tercile") of the 1981-2015 historical distribution in Kenya given the Terciles of IOD (Postive, Neutral, Negative) during that same season.
