The trade winds here tend to mitigate the heat. At that time of the year there should be a strong SSW breeze from the Mozambique Channel and it whips up the occasional rain squall. On the beach you're unlikely to feel any furnace effect and by 5 pm many people are reaching for a shirt. The breezes are weaker at night though they can go on well into the evening.

We have stayed in Mombassa plenty of times in September and have found it one of the best months to visit not too humid as normally there is a refreshing breeze , we have experienced the odd shower but they soon pass and nothing to worry about.
