Heavy rain warning for parts of Fiji

A trough of low pressure with associated rain and thunderstorms lies slow moving over the Fiji Group and is expected to affect the country until tomorrow.

Occasional rain with isolated thunderstorms and heavy falls is expected over most places, becoming frequent and heavy later today.

Moderate east to southeast winds, gusty at times and moderate to rough seas is also anticipated.

A “Heavy Rain Warning” is now in force for southern, eastern and interior of Viti Levu, Kadavu and nearby smaller islands, Lomaiviti and Southern Lau Groups.

The trough has potential to produce total rainfall of more than 50mm in 24 hours. Isolated heavy falls may lead to flash flooding of low-lying and flood prone areas, especially in those areas with persistent isolated heavy falls.

The risk is elevated during high tide.

Rain is expected to gradually ease from west of the group by tomorrow while occasional showers and thunderstorms may persist over most places, however isolated heavy falls is possible.
