Global climate change in Kenya seems to have brought about an "exchange" of roles between the season of large and small rains.
According to the National Meteorological Service, rainfall will begin in the north and northeast of the country in a few days from around Tuesday, October 8th, and has been almost absent since June and July.
In short, a real rainy season is expected, which could last until the end of November, instead of the one with sporadic showers and small showers that should have guaranteed the arid regions the reserve to reach precisely these that should be the "small rains".
In the upturned world that also affects Kenya, much of the country hopes so, given that in Turkana, Samburu and the Wajir region is experiencing an unprecedented drought in September and October.
The change in weather was announced yesterday by a strong wind that hit the Rift Valley and also the cities of Nairobi and Machakos in particular, with uprooted trees and torn billboards, traffic problems for the whirlwinds of dust and earth raised by the gusts on the roads.
According to experts, it is the sign of the arrival of rains, which will be abundant and could last until early December, obviously in pieces, otherwise beyond the relief in regions that are suffering at the limit of human and animal tolerability, would become a big problem.
On the coast, where in reality the sky has never stopped watering the land, the rainfall should be lower and alternate in the sun and good weather, although already making you feel the rise in temperature, all this will bring more moisture than usual.
