Temperature records of the last 73 years

The hottest temperature measured from 1950 to January 2023 was reported by the Nausori weather station. In January 2013, the record temperature of 35.0 °C was reported here. The hottest summer from July to September, based on all 3 weather stations on the Fijis , was recorded in 2022 with an average temperature of 24.8 °C. This average temperature will normally be measured every four to six hours, thus also including the nights. Normally, this value is 23.0 degrees Celsius. The average maximum daily temperature at that time was 28.8 °C.

The coldest day in these 73 years was reported by the Nausori weather station. Here the temperature dropped to 12.3 °C in January 2010. Nausori lies at an altitude of seven meters above sea level. The coldest winter (January to March) was in 1978 with an average temperature of 25.5 °C. On the Fijis, it is usual to have about 0.9 degrees more at 26.4 °C for this three-month period.

The most precipitation fell in November 1961. With 50.0 mm per day, the Laucala Bay weather station recorded the highest monthly average of the last 73 years.

Long-term development of temperatures from 1987 - 2022

In contrast to single record values, long-term development cannot simply be brought about by all weather stations in the country. Both the number and the locations are constantly changing. An average value would give a distorted result. If several measuring stations in particularly cold mountain or coastal regions are added in one year, the average would decrease as a result of this alone. If a station fails during the summer or winter months, it does not provide any values and distorts the average again. The subsequent long-term development was therefore reduced to only 1 measuring points in order to have comparable data over as long a period as possible.

In the years 1987 to 2022, there were only these 1 weather stations in the whole country, which reported continuous temperature values (Nadi). From these weather reports, we have created a long-term development that shows the monthly average temperatures. The hottest month in this entire period was February 2016 at 28.5 °C. July 2006 was the coldest month with an average temperature of 21.8 °C.

The average annual temperature was about 25.1 °C in the years after 1987 and about 26.0 °C in the last years before 2022. So in less than 36 years, it has increased by about 0.9 °C. This trend only applies to the selected 1 weather stations on the Fijis. A considerably more comprehensive evaluation of global warming has been provided separately.
