2014 September Equinox

The 2014 September (southward) Equinox (Tuesday, 23rd September) - marks equal day and night over the equator. The closest point of the earth to the sun (the 'subsolar point') moves over the equator towards the southern hemisphere.

A transitional period of shifts in the mosnoon winds called 'Matalai' occurs from mid-September to mid-November where there is a period of rains and little wind between the switch from the southerly Kusi to the north easterly Kaskazi.
