Keep your warm clothes handy, the cold and windy weather across the country is expected to continue over the next week or so.
Acting Director for Meteorology Services, Viliame Vereivalu explains that June through to August is normally Fiji’s cooler months.
Earlier this week, Nadarivatu was the coldest place to be, a crisp nine point five degrees Celsius was recorded.
Vereivalu adding that it’s very possible we’ll see single digit temperatures again over this month.
“Our part of the world is furthest away from the Sun during this period that is from June to August, as such, the least amount of sun radiation is received during this period so that is why we are expecting, I mean we are experiencing these cool nights during these three months from June to August.”
The Director adding that temperatures are expected to increase and bring in warmer weather when we are to September.
Meanwhile the coldest temperature on record for Fiji was reached 32 years on August of 1986, a chilly six point five degrees was documented in Nadrau in the highlands of Ba.
