In a statement released by the Meteorology Agency on April 2nd, it was said that the rainfall forecast shows that wetter conditions are expected during the first dekad of April 2024 compared to the last dekad of March 2024.

“Rainy days are expected to vary between three (3) and seven (7) days, evenly distributed across the dekad. The main factors influencing rainfall in this dekad are the Sea Surface Temperature in the Indian Ocean and local factors,” Meteo Rwanda added in the statement.

Meteo Rwanda continues to state that moderate to slightly strong wind speeds ranging between 4 and 8 m/s are expected across the country.

The temperature forecast expects that during the first dekad of April 2024, a reduction in the mean maximum temperature compared to the previous dekad of March 2024 is expected. The average maximum temperature is expected to range between 18°C and 28°C, which is within the range of the LTM maximum temperature for the first dekad of April.

Localized parts of Kigali City, southern parts of Bugesera, northern parts of Gisagara, western parts of Ngoma District, Bugarama valley, and eastern parts of Nyagatare Districts are expected to experience higher maximum temperatures ranging between 26°C and 28°C.
