Cold days ahead

IF warm jackets and woolly overalls have been your best friend these past few days with the cool temperatures keeping many snug in bed, be prepared to hang on to them a little longer, as the weather looks to remain the same.

Average minimal temperatures around the country have remained between 15 and 16 degrees Celsius lately, the Meteorology office yesterday confirmed.

And these temperatures do not look to get any warmer or cooler any time soon, with the duty forecaster confirming that these next few days will indeed remain cool — and the evenings cooler.

"Currently, we still have South to Southwest wind flow over the group. These are cool Southerly winds, the weather is fine, just a shower or two over the Eastern parts of the larger islands, but otherwise it should be generally fine," the duty forecaster said.

"The only concern is the cool conditions at night, so we'll still have the cool temperatures at night for most places. But most probably by the weekend, we'll start to see a little warming effect."

When asked about coolest temperatures recorded so far in the Central Division, the duty forecaster said the Monasavu Dam recorded the coldest, sitting at 12.5 degrees Celsius.

"In general, most of the temperatures have been below 18 degrees. Monasavu definitely recorded the lowest.

"For the West, we're looking at some 16 degrees, for Nausori, it's about 15.9 degrees — so basically all the temperatures are below 18 degrees."
