The heavy rain and flood warning previously in force for the country has been cancelled, says the Nadi weather office.

However, with a trough affecting the country expected to move over the group Fiji Meteorological Services director, Ravind Kumar, has cautioned the public to remain vigilant and continue to monitor the weather.

We are only weeks away from the cyclone season – November to April. Many Fijians who were severely affected by the Category 5 cyclone in February are still living in tents.

Mr Kumar said strong wind warnings remain in force for land areas because of an active trough of low pressure and associated low pressure system affecting the group.

“As a result of this trough and low pressure system, the country is currently experiencing periods of rain, heavy at times,” he said.

“The trough is approaching the group from the West and is expected to move over Fiji.

“We will keep monitoring the weather and the river system for any latest update on floods.”

He advised the public to take the weather forecast and warnings seriously and keep updated with the latest weather information.
