Met office monitors two disturbances; one could impact Mauritius

Despite low to medium chances of development, weather experts are paying close attention to two disturbances over the Indian Ocean, one of which could develop into a tropical depression – either Madagascar/Mozambique or Rodrigues/Mauritius.

According to weather stations, both low-pressure systems continue to show signs of organization so far.

Regardless of development, the two systems could bring locally heavy rainfall to the islands during the next few days.

The Mauritius Meteorological Services are said to be closely monitoring both tropical waves for further development and will continue to advise the public.

The first tropical depression / cyclone will be called Ana.

Meteorologists have predicted a busy cyclone season this year.

On midday Wednesday 19 January, the Mauritius Meteorological Services issued a Special Weather bulletin for the South, the South-west and the Central Plateau. This will be valid until 7pm.

“Active convective clouds have developed to the south and the central plateau and will cause heavy showers accompanied with thunderstorms as from the start of the afternoon. The showers will spread to the southwest and to the other sectors, thereafter,” it said.

It added that the heavy showers will cause water accumulations in flood prone areas.

Meanwhile, the maximum temperature will be above the mean by 2 to 3 degrees Celsius, with around 29 degrees Celsius over the high grounds and between 31 and 34 degrees Celsius along the coasts.
