Mauritius Weather forecast
This section applies to Mauritius Weather Conditions as well as Rodrigues
Based on the above indicators, the coming winter is expected to bear the following general probabilities: (i) Because of the effects of La Nina conditions in the Indian Ocean, which cooled down the sea this past summer, wintry conditions have set in earlier, as expected, but without transition. It will be recalled that in 2007, weather in Mauritius with the first cold front had arrived on the 1st of June while this year it did so on 23rd of May, i.e one week earlier. (ii) Anticyclones will follow at more or less regular succession of around 6-9 days provoking on occasions rough seas with heavy swells from the south seas. (iii) Cumulative rainfall will be near the long term seasonal mean during the whole period of winter both for Mauritius and Rodrigues. The normal values of winter rainfall over Mauritius and Rodrigues are 666 mm and 380 mm respectively. However, most of the winter rains will be concentrated to the East, South and Central Plateau and the windward sides. (iv) In the beginning of winter, day and night temperatures will be slightly below normal. Occasionally during light wind and clear sky conditions it is not excluded that minimum temperatures plummet to 8 degrees Celsius in the inland parts of the island. By the end of June and onwards the day temperature will be close to the seasonal mean. (v) Occasionally, during episodes of short-lived strong anticyclones in the months of July and August, fresh trades that will establish over the Mascarenes may provoke temporarily wet and chilly conditions causing a sensation of cold. (vi) The average wind speed is likely to be below normal. The frequency of strong wind gusts of the order of 90 kilometres per hour, which will be experienced especially in July and August, will be less than in previous years.
