The weather and climate of Kenya
Kenya is located on the equator and has a pleasant tropical climate, but the regional climate varies greatly due to various factors such as altitude. The average daytime temperature in Kenya is between 20°C/68°F and 28°C/82°F, but it is warmer along the coast. Kenya is so close to the equator that the four seasons are not very obvious. Therefore, there are dry seasons and rainy seasons. During the dry season, daytime temperatures are typically around 23°C/73°F at high altitudes (like the Masai Mara) and 28°C/82 at low altitudes (like the coasts)
.The sky and the day are clear. During the rainy season, daytime temperatures at high altitudes range between 24°C/75°F and 27°C/81°F. Because of this, shade nets are essential for agricultural planting, people’s production and life in Kenya.
