**1.1 Forecast for the October-November-December (OND) 2019 "Short Rains" Season

The climate outlook for the October-November-December (OND) 2019 "Short Rains" season indicates that most of the country is likely to experience enhanced rainfall. This will be driven by warmer than average Sea Surface Temperatures (SSTs) over the western Equatorial Indian Ocean (adjacent to the East African coastline), coupled with cooler than average SSTs over the eastern Equatorial Indian Ocean (adjacent to Australia).
