Kids soak up the sun

WHILE children are now pysched up to return to school this week, some children from Wainiyabia in Serua farewelled their last holiday yesterday in style.

In some places, families prepared a back to school feast while some celebrated in their own small way.

But a lot of families were spotted in the Suva foreshore enjoying the sea breeze while others splashed around in the water freely before the focus shifts to the new school term.

The blistering heat failed to dampen their spirit as evident in yesterday's outing.

And while the weather office in Nadi explained the heat wave being experienced around the country throughout last week, it has urged the general public not to be concerned.

The Fiji Meteorology Service said the heat was a result of the non-existence of clouds as the result of the warm sea because the atmosphere was dry.

"There are no clouds to absorb the heart before it comes straight to the earth," the weather office said.

The centre said a tropical disturbance that was moving away from Fiji had caused the temperature to rise, another factor contributing to the hot weather.

He said the tropical disturbance had crossed over Rotuma and should hit northern Tonga in the next 48 hours.

Meanwhile, the weather forecaster said Fiji should expect two more cyclones before the end of February.
