As the summer holiday season approaches lots of people ask what is the weather like 'right now' and after responding to a particular question someone asked me to keep them up dated, so rather than just put updates on that thread, I thought I would start this one so everyone can read it and anyone else who is here can also contribute.
A couple of things to bear in mind:
I live in Mtwapa so am primarily writing about here, though I also spend time in the tourist area of Shanzu, Bamburi and Nyali which are all virtually next to each other on the North Coast. However the South Coast resorts around Ukunda and Diani are only about 25 miles away on the other side of Mombasa Town.
When it rains the showers tend to be relatively short but torrential and they can be very localised, it can be raining on one beach and fine on another a few miles away.
