Mombasa Weather July Averages, Kenya
What's The Weather Like In Mombasa In July
Conditions continue to dry out in July in Mombasa as the amount of precipitation continues to dwindle and temperatures remain steady. While this is still winter in the Southern Hemisphere, thanks to the tropical location of the region and its closeness to the Equator, temperatures will remain warm throughout the year. This makes this time of the year a nice getaway for mild weather, when other regions may experience high heat in the Northern Hemisphere.
One area that does cool off a little bit at this time of the year is the sea. While still warm enough to enjoy, the average sea temperature this time of the year is a mild 26°C (79°F).
However, on land, temperatures are very similar to what they were in the June. The average overnight low temperature remains tied for the coolest of the season with lows bottoming out at 20°C (68°F).

However, there is still a good chance of seeing sun on the same day as rain with the chance of a sunny day at 22 percent and the chance of a completely cloudy day at just 5 percent.
