A High Wave Warning is in force in Mauritius and will be valid till Monday 06 June 2022 at 6pm, the Mauritius Meteorological Services have warned.

In a special warning issued at 11am on Sunday, the Met Office added that the anticyclone to the South of the Mascarenes is causing “moderate and perturbed trades over our region.”

The Met Office expects the sea to be “very rough” beyond the reefs with South-Westerly swells of the order of 4 metres.

“The waves may break along the Western and Southern low lying coastal areas during high tides.

“Fishermen, pleasure-crafts users and the public are strongly advised not to go out at sea and even not to venture along those beaches during high tides.”

The Met Office said gusts reaching 55 km/h in exposed areas should also be expected as from Sunday afternoon.

The maximum temperature will vary between 21 and 24 degrees Celsius over the central plateau and between 26 and 28 degrees Celsius along the coasts.

The minimum temperature will vary between 16 and 18 degrees Celsius over the central plateau and between 19 and 22 degrees Celsius over the coastal regions.
