Weatherman: Expect cold nights in May

MEMBERS of the public have been advised to prepare for colder nights this month.

Fiji Meteorological Service duty forecaster said the cold nights were the result of clear clouds caused by the southerly winds.

The duty forecaster said the absence of cloud cover to trap heat was also a contributing factor.

The duty forecaster said it was normal for Fiji to experience temperatures like this at this time of the year.

The duty forecaster said at night, there was no incoming solar energy so the ground would continue to radiate heat and its temperature would fall resulting in chilly nights.

The Fiji Meteorological Service also further explained that the Southern Hemisphere is cooler in June, July, and August because it receives less solar energy than the Northern Hemisphere.
