The Climate in General

At 1,795 metres (5,889 ft) above sea level, Nairobi (See map of Kenya) enjoys a moderate climate. Under the Köppen climate classification, Nairobi has a subtropical highland climate. The altitude makes for some cool evenings, especially in the June/July season, when the temperature can drop to 10 °C (50 °F).

There are two rainy seasons, but rainfall can be moderate. The cloudiest part of the year is just after the first rainy season, when, until September, conditions are usually overcast with drizzle. As Nairobi is situated close to the equator, the differences between the seasons are minimal. The seasons are referred to as the wet season and dry season. The timing of sunrise and sunset varies little throughout the year for the same reason. For convenience the year can be subdivided into four seasons as follows:-

  • Mid-December to Mid-March:  Warm, sunny, dry.
  • Mid- March to May: Main rainy season.
  • June to Mid-October: Cool, rather cloudy (especially July-August), dry.
  • Mid-October to Mid-December: Secondary rainy seasons.

The sunniest and warmest part of the year is from December to March, when temperatures average the mid-twenties during the day. The mean maximum temperature for this period is 24 °C (75 °F).
