Residents of Kinangop afternoon watched in shock as their villages were slowly covered by what looked like snow.

The Kenya Meteorological Department dismissed claims that the area had experienced snowfall, saying it was just hail which did not melt because of cold weather.

The country has been experiencing heavy rains this week and Kinangop, Njabini and Nyandarua recorded average night temperatures of 4.6 degrees Celsius.

The meteorological department has said the rains experienced in the country will end by the end of the week.

Assistant Director in charge of Forecasting Services, Bernard Chanzu, explained:

“When it is hot there is moisture that condenses at a faster rate which form clouds that are heavier than usual. This is what creates hail.”

Nairobi, on the other hand, has experienced high temperatures in recent days, going over 30 degrees celsius, with heavy rain experienced on Monday night to Tuesday morning.
