A warning for strong winds and large swells is in force in Mauritius, valid until Thursday May 23 at 4 p.m. The strong anticyclone to the southwest of the Mascarenes is causing windy and cold weather in our region, indicates the weather station in its bulletin issued this Tuesday morning.

The wind will blow from the South-East at an average speed of 40 km/h with gusts of around 90 km/h in exposed places.


Clouds associated with the remnants of a frontal system will cause passing showers on the island this morning and throughout the day,
These showers will temporarily be of moderate intensity in the East, South and on the central plateau. Pockets of fog are also expected in certain areas, thus reducing visibility.

Maximum temperatures: between 19 and 22 degrees Celsius on the central plateau and between 24 and 27 degrees Celsius on the coast. Minimums: between 15 and 17 degrees Celsius on the central plateau and between 19 and 22 degrees Celsius in the coastal regions.

Other clouds in the trade winds of the strong anticyclone will cross the island during the night. As a result, temporary showers will persist especially on high ground.

The public is therefore advised:

1) pay close attention to flying debris such as broken branches or falling trees.
2) avoid maneuvering at height and other high structures.
3) to be very careful on the roads because of crosswinds.

The sea is very rough beyond the reefs with waves of around 4 meters. These waves will influence the lagoons mainly in the South-West, South and East and may break along low-lying coastal areas during high tides.

Fishermen, boaters and the general public are strongly advised not to go out to sea and not to venture along these beaches.
