MEMBERS of the public are being advised to expect colder temperatures in the coming days.
This follows a weather forecast update from the Fiji Meteorological Office in Nadi yesterday predicting cooler days ahead.
The duty forecaster attributed the recent spate of low temperatures to southerly winds which are creeping into the group.
"Why it is so cold is because we have southerly winds. Our normal trade winds are turning predominantly southerly, so with the trough over the eastern parts, all the cool air from the south is being brought up, so with the rain gone, it will be colder from tomorrow (today)," the forecaster explained.
"Right now, the southerly winds are creeping in so they will be predominant come tomorrow (today).
"Why we're experiencing rain is because of a trough that's still over the group. That is what's causing rain right now over the whole group.
"These should clear from the West from tonight (last night) or overnight. It should be fine tomorrow but for other centres, especially Vanua Levu and other parts of Viti Levu, including Suva and the Lau Group. They will experience more rain but that should finish later tomorrow (today)."
The weather office is advising the public to brace for cooler days and colder nights.
It revealed that Monasavu recorded the lowest temperature on Tuesday at 15 degrees Celsius with the highest at 19.
