Kenyan winter ended in dramatic style

Nairobi residents are once again enjoying sunny weather, just a week after an unusual ice storm in Nyahururu marked the end of the cold season. Heavy coats, scarves and knee-length boots have been discarded as warm weather favors lighter clothing.

September is usually a sunny month but, this year, significant amounts of rain have fallen in Nairobi and its environs. The rains are a big relief to city residents, currently experiencing the worst water rationing since the year 2000. Meteorologists say that rains that usually come between October and December will be enough to replenish the city’s dwindling water reserves.
