Uganda and its neighbouring countries should brace for wet conditions in the first week of April, according to the weekly weather forecast of the month.   

“Moderate rainfall (50-200 mm) expected over south-western to eastern Ethiopia, southern, central to north-eastern Kenya, western Uganda, Burundi, Rwanda, and most parts of Tanzania,” stated ICPAC’s statement.

“Light rainfall (less than 50 mm) expected over central to southern Somalia, south-eastern Ethiopia, central to southern South Sudan, Djibouti, eastern Uganda, and parts of eastern and north-western Kenya,” the statement added.


According to the weekly weather forecast, most parts of the region including Uganda should expect favourable temperatures.  

“Moderate to high temperatures (20-32℃) expected over Sudan, southern and western South Sudan, eastern and southern Ethiopia, Eritrea, Djibouti, Somalia, northern and eastern Kenya, Uganda, and most parts of Tanzania,” stated ICPAC.

ICPAC is a climate centre accredited by the World Meteorological Organisation that provides climate services to 11 countries.

The services offered by ICPAC aim at creating resilience in a region deeply affected by climate change and extreme weather.        

ICPAC operates under the Inter-Governmental Authority on Development (IGAD), which is a regional body to which Uganda subscribes as a member.
