Long Rains beginning?
After a brief dry interval, telemetry shows that snowfall is again occurring at the summit of Kilimanjaro. Could we be seeing the beginning of the "Long Rains"? Contributor Timba at Ahsante Tours & Safaris writes of "heavy rains in Moshi and surrounding areas yesterday. In town [and on the mountain], it rained the whole afternoon to early evening." Timba suggests that the normal long rain pattern is for morning rain in Dar es Salaam, followed by afternoon and evening rain in the Kilimanjaro region, but his friend in Dar saw no rain yesterday. Stay tuned.
