Winds of 80 km/h: Anticyclone Hits Mauritius

A strong high-pressure system south of the Mascarene Islands is causing windy weather in Mauritius.

The wind is blowing from the east-southeast at 30 km/h with gusts reaching up to 70 km/h. Gusts could reach 80 km/h in exposed areas.

The meteorological station issued a bulletin this Wednesday morning, April 3rd, advising the public to be cautious on the roads due to crosswinds and to avoid high maneuvers.

In the past 24 hours, the strongest gusts recorded were as follows:

  • Champ de Mars: 76 km/h

  • Vacoas: 69 km/h
  • St-Félix: 61 km/h
  • Quatre-Bornes: 57 km/h
  • Plaisance: 52 km/h

On the other hand, clouds from the east-southeast are influencing local weather.

The morning and daytime will be cloudy with showers in the East, South, and on the central plateau. Fog patches are expected in the highlands, reducing visibility.

During the night, more clouds from the east will bring intermittent rain, which could be moderate in intensity in the highlands. Fog patches will persist in some areas.

The maximum temperature will range from 24 to 26 degrees Celsius on the central plateau and between 27 and 30 degrees Celsius on the coast.

The minimum temperature will be between 21 and 23 degrees Celsius in the highlands and between 24 and 26 degrees Celsius in coastal regions.

The sea is rough beyond the reefs, with waves around 3.50 meters. High sea outings and lagoon activities in the East and South are not recommended.
