FIJI will experience cold nights all throughout this month, the Nadi Weather Office said yesterday. And temperatures could go as low as 13 degrees Celsius.
Weather forecaster on duty Rajneel Prasad says the reason for cold nights is because Fiji is experiencing air advection from the south. He said the atmosphere over Fiji was also dry, so because of radiation cooling heat was lost in the atmosphere bringing over cold winds.
"As a result the whole month is going to be cold," Mr Prasad said.
He said temperatures in the long run might even go down to as low as 13 degrees Celsius or even further.
Meanwhile, Fiji's lowest temperature of 6.5 degrees Celsius was recorded in Nadrau, on the border between Navosa, Naitasiri and Ba, in the months of July and August of 1987.
