According to met projections, the counties that will be extremely cold include parts of Nyeri, Muranga, Kirinyaga, and Laikipia.

The temperatures in some of these areas are expected to drop to 8 to 10 Degrees Celcius.

On the other hand, areas where the temperatures will range between 10 to 15 Degrees Celcius include parts of Nairobi County, Kiambu, Narok, Machakis, Nakuru, Nyandarua, Baringo, Elgeyo Marakwet, Uasin Gishu and Makueni.

Trans Nzioia, West Pokot, Kakamega, Samburu, Meru, and Tharaka Nithi counties will also have cold nights.

Meanwhile, it was noted that the heavy rains would continue in parts of the country. However, the intensity was projected to drop during the week.

Kenyans were still advised to watch out for floods owing to the incidents reported in the last two weeks.

“Rainfall is expected to continue over several parts of the country. Heavy rainfall events are likely to occur in some parts of the Highlands East and West of the Rift Valley, the Lake Victoria Basin and the Rift Valley during the first half of the forecast period.

“The expected heavy rainfall is likely to be accompanied by strong winds, thunder, and lightning. The public is advised to avoid sheltering under trees and metallic structures to minimize exposure to lightning strikes,” read the advisory in part.
