What’s the weather like in Kenya in June?
Kenya has opposite seasons to the UK as it’s in the southern hemisphere, and it’s the start of winter in June. The East African country has different landscapes which range from dry savannahs to national parks and beaches. This means that the weather is different depending on where you go, but most of the country has two wet seasons across the year. In June, temperatures are still warm and it’s generally a much drier month compared to May.
The average temperature in the capital, Nairobi, is 18ºC in June, with highs of 23ºC and lows of 12ºC. Just 30mm of rain’s expected over the course of five days, which is much less than in Mombassa to the east. Sitting on Kenya’s Indian Ocean coast, the city predicts 90mm of rain this month but has hotter temperatures with highs reaching 27ºC and lows of 20ºC. If you want to go for a swim in the sea, the water’s a warm 27ºC at this time of year. Over on the shores of Lake Victoria, the city of Kisumu has an average temperature with highs of 28ºC and 90mm of rain spread across ten days.
