Kenya has been experiencing ncreased day-time and night-time temperatures as the heavy rainfall that was recorded from late last year when the region was experiencing the El nino phenomenon has subsided.

The World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) last week announced that the world had the warmest January on record this year.

In a statement released on February 15, WMO said sea surface temperatures have been record high for ten consecutive months.

“It was 0.70°C above the 1991-2020 average for January and 0.12°C above the temperature of the previous warmest January, in 2020, according to Copernicus Climate Change Service,” the UN meteorological agency said.
