The dry spell affecting most parts of the country is expected to continue into the next three months, says Fiji Meteorological Service director Ravind Kumar.

Mr Kumar said this was determined following the assessment made after the passing of the tropical depression last week.

“For the next three months, the prediction is that we will continue to experience drier than normal conditions,” he said.

“The dry spell has not been broken even though there has been some good rain that has come about. We need to get similar sort of episodes where we get about 100 millimetre or more rainfall in a week.

“As we go in to our tropical cyclone seasons, we see these incidents of rain will increase. However, the amount of rain that we expect to get in November and December will not be that much.”

Meanwhile, Permanent Secretary for Infrastructure and Transport, Francis Kean has advised the public to save water during the dry spell.
