oa East African Geographical Review - The East African Weather Report

Volume 1967, Issue 5
  • ISSN : 1937-6812



The East African Weather Report has been issued weekly since June 1966 to cover conditions from Wednesday to Wednesday. At present the reports consist of daily pressure charts (at 1200 hours G.M.T.), a table or weekly rainfall and a map showing the week's rain at 106 stations, together with a page of comment on the weather of 'the week. These charts provide the geographer with an opportunity to study conditions only a few days after they have been experienced and so are valuable teaching aids. A short statement entitled Notes for users has been prepared but this present note supplements this. It may also be helpful to discuss the relevance of these charts to the geographer and to introduce students to modern concepts of tropical meteorology of especial significance to East Africa.
