Mauritius is set to be impacted by a tropical storm approaching from Thursday. The system, originating northeast of Madagascar, has intensified into a tropical depression and was located around 675 km northwest of Mauritius early Monday.

It is expected to further intensify and is moving at a speed of 35 km/h. The Vacoas meteorological station forecasts the system to reach the region from Thursday, February 22.

Meanwhile, intense tropical cyclone Djoungou is heading southeast away from the region and poses no threat to the Mascarene Islands. Clouds from the southeast brought cloudy weather and showers, particularly in the east, south, and central plateau.

Fog is expected in some areas. Weather conditions are expected to improve in the early afternoon, becoming mostly sunny thereafter. More clouds from the southeast will bring showers at night, mainly in the eastern and southern parts of the island.

Maximum temperatures will reach 26-28 degrees Celsius on the central plateau and 30-33 degrees Celsius on the coast. Minimum temperatures will range between 20-22 degrees Celsius in the central plateau and 24-26 degrees Celsius in coastal regions.

Winds from the east-southeast are blowing at 25 km/h with gusts up to 50 km/h. The sea is rough beyond the reefs, with waves around 2.50 meters high, making sea outings not recommended.
