Seychelles to Expect Higher Than Average Temperatures This Year

Speaking to SNA on Wednesday, the chief executive of the Seychelles Meteorological Authority, Vincent Amelie, said, “This year the heat will be enhanced globally with the impact of climate change, so the temperature can be extreme with the possibility of breaking records.”

Amelie told SNA that the last few years have shown a rising trend in the temperature.

Seychelles, a group of 115 islands in the western Indian Ocean, becomes hotter in March and April.

“This time of the year, we are transitioning from our rainy season to our dry season and this coincides with the sun moving from the southern hemisphere to the north, and this can a cause a rise in the temperature,” said Amelie.
