 WEATHER OUTLOOK for Jan to Feb 2018

Lake Victoria Basin and Central

The cold and hazy conditions being experienced over most parts of the country have been caused by the winds blowing from the Northern Hemi-sphere which is experiencing winter towards our region and hence bringing the cold conditions. The winds usually carry dust particles from Sahara desert and Arabian Peninsula and deposit them in our region which has led to the current hazy conditions being experienced in the country resulting in reduced visibility.

Cold and hazy conditions are expected to prevail over most parts of the country until mid-January 2018 when the phenomenon will reduce.
