4-Meter Swells to Shake Mauritian Coasts



4-Meter Swells to Shake Mauritian Coasts

A warning for high swells is in effect in Mauritius as the country braces for turbulent weather conditions.

The Meteorological Service issued a bulletin on Sunday, March 24th, signaling the approach of a frontal system followed by a strong anti-cyclone from the southwest.

Clouds associated with the frontal system are expected to impact local weather overnight.

The morning and daytime forecast predicts partly cloudy skies over elevated areas and windward slopes with scattered showers.

Elsewhere, predominantly fair weather is expected. Cloud cover will gradually increase overnight accompanied by intermittent rainfall, which may be moderate at times.

Maximum temperatures are forecasted to range between 25 and 27 degrees Celsius inland and 30 to 33 degrees Celsius along the coast.

Some regions may also experience pockets of fog. Minimum temperatures are expected to be between 20 and 22 degrees Celsius in elevated areas and 24 to 26 degrees Celsius in coastal regions.

Winds from the southeast are blowing at around 25 km/h with gusts up to 50 km/h, strengthening further during the night with gusts reaching 70 km/h in exposed areas.

Sea conditions are rough beyond the reefs with wave heights reaching approximately 3 meters, expected to become very rough, peaking around 4 meters by early afternoon.

These high swells may lead to coastal inundation during high tides in low-lying areas of the southwest, south, and southeast.

As a precaution, maritime activities and lagoon excursions in the Southwest, South, and Southeast are not recommended.
