Still chilly

Cold weather (relatively colder than before) is prevailing since the beginning of the week. Strong winds accompanied by intermittent rainy periods are causing a sensation of chill, especially on high grounds. Temperature has fallen below normal.

In the western parts of the island as we move from the centre towards Port Louis and the vicinity, it’s much better. I just came back from Domaine les Pailles where the Infotech 2007 event (an annual expo of the IT sector) is being held. It was quite warm with a pleasant sun. Here in the central plateau, where I am, it’s still kind of chilly.

The meteorological services say two strong anticyclones to the south of the mascarenes will maintain the cold weather and gusts of the order of 60 km/h. Seas will be rough and people are advised not to venture in the high seas. The weather should improve as from Monday.

So keep your pulls and blanket handy till then.
