Kikuube District has a sharp variation in rainfall distribution, mainly due to differences in the landscape. The landscape ranges from the low-lying Rift Valley floor to the rift escarpment, and the raised hill ranges. The Rift Valley floor lies in a rain shadow and has the least amount of rainfall. The district receives a bimodal rainfall pattern with totals ranging from about 800 mm in the Lake Albert flat rising rapidly the further away East above the Escarpment to between 1250 – 1500 mm per annum before tapering off to 1000mm in the Eastern border areas of the District. The peak periods are between March – May and September to December. However, the rainfall pattern has become more erratic and less predictable. In general, the second peak rainfall (August to November) is higher than the early peak. This presents a very important potential for agricultural development.
