Rainfall series in various parts of Kenya is subjected to spectral analysis. Contrary to past investigations, it is found that no rainfall behaviour at any rainfall station possesses a ten-year cycle neither is there any important five-year cycle. Most rainfall series in central Kenya possess an average cycle of between 2 and 1/2 to 3 and 1/2 years while those on the Coast and Lake Victoria area have a 2.2-year cycle. There are secondary cycles of various lengths for most stations.
