"This was for most parts of the country with 19 out of 22 stations recording anomalies," he said.

Mr Waqaicelua said Nabouwalu on Vanua Levu recorded the greatest increase of more than two degrees Celsius with a maximum temperature of 34.4.

Rakiraki, where the average temperature for this time of the year normally recorded 32.5 degrees Celsius hit 33.8 this time around.

"The mean maximum temperatures in the first two weeks of the month ranged from 30.9°C to 32.8°C in the coastal areas of Fiji, while the mean maximum temperature at Monasavu was 26.9°C.
