Weather Forecast; As the new year came in, heat poured as dry and hot winds from the Sahara desert were menacingly blowing the life out of Ugandans.
However, they answered their prayers over the weekend as the cool weather returned. It rained on Saturday and on Monday in Kampala.
Currently, the weekly weather forecast at Climate Center in Nairobi, ICPAC is predicting that the unbearable heat will keep at bay. The forecast said the heat won’t be coming back for at least another one week (18-25 January, 2022).
“Light rain of less than 30mm is expected in most parts of Uganda, South Sudan, Southern and Western Kenya, coastal Eritrea, and Northern Ethiopia,” said ICPAC in a recent weather alert.
ICPAC works with national weather stations in the region including Uganda National Meteorological Authority (UNMA).
UNMA’s PR officer, Lilian Nkwenge says the November-February dry season will continue. This is despite the interruptions of the rains she calls off-season or isolated rains.
This specifically affected the north and coastal region and there was nothing but bad news as the situation has been predicted to only get worse with time. According to the most recent forecast, the dry spell will extend southward as it ravages counties in Ukambani. It will also affect other regions in the Coastal and the Rift Valley areas.
