Batsirai Continues To Get Closer To Mauritius, The Weather Should Deteriorate Tuesday Evening

Must Read

The cyclonic alert class 1 is maintained this Monday, January 31. The meteorological services of Vacoas, point out that the analysis of satellite images confirms that the tropical cyclone Batsirai has begun to move towards the west-southwest and has maintained its intensity.

The Mauritius Meteorological Department said that at 22:00 Tropical Cyclone Batsirai was centered about 640 km northeast of Mauritius in latitude 16.1 degrees South and longitude 62.6 degrees East. Batsirai is now moving in a general west-southwest direction at a speed of about 13 km / hour. And on this new trajectory, cyclone Batsirai is approaching and represents a potential threat to Mauritius.

The weather will deteriorate tomorrow evening, Tuesday 1 February. The wind will blow from the southeast at a speed of about 45 km/h with gusts of 90 km/h in exposed areas. The wind will strengthen further tomorrow, reaching gusts of around 100 km/h in the evening. The sea will be very rough with swells of 4 to 5 meters. It is therefore not advisable to go out to sea.

Météo-France La Réunion also forecasts that Bastirai will become an intense cyclone. These rapid changes of names are related to the size of the phenomenon. The overall cloud mass is relatively small. This “modest” dimension limits the impacted area, but makes BATSIRAI even more sensitive to the slightest variation of the various parameters that allow meteorologists to anticipate its trajectory and intensity.

The public is strongly advised to take the necessary precautions.
