Atrough of low pressure with associated cloud and rain remains slow moving to the north of Fiji, says Director of Meteorological Services Ravind Kumar.

“It is expected to drift southwards and start affecting the country from tomorrow,” Mr Kumar said.

The trough is anticipated to remain slow moving until Saturday. Thus, a wet Hibiscus festival can be expected.

On Tuesday, cloudy periods with some showers are likely and showers are anticipated to become frequent later in the day.

From Wednesday, Occasional rain with isolated heavy rainfall is expected. Given that the trough is slow moving, rain is anticipated to continue until Saturday.

Flooding of major rivers are not likely, however, flooding of drains, small streams & creeks and low lying areas can be anticipated due to localised heavy rainfall associated with the trough.

Mr Kumar said a strong wind warning remains was in force for mariners in the Northern Lau Waters, Northern Koro Sea, Yasawa Waters, Waters, Northern Vanua Levu Waters and Vatu-I-Ra Passage.
