Fiji Braces For Heavy Rain, Strong Winds and Coastal Flooding Through Saturday

A low-pressure area, located near Fiji is causing cloudy and rainy weather in the northern and eastern parts of the country.

This will continue until Saturday, according to the Fiji Meteorological Service.

“As the trough of low pressure continues to linger over the northern and eastern parts of Fiji, it
continues to bring overcast conditions with occasional rain over the Northern Division, Lau and
Lomaiviti groups, Lami-Suva-Nasinu-Nausori-Korovou-Rakiraki, Serua-Namosi-Naitasiri, the
interior of Tailevu North and Ra over the next few days with isolated thunderstorms with heavy
falls that can also be experienced especially over the Northern and Eastern Division.”

Meanwhile, there’s high pressure in the southwest directing strong winds and big waves toward Fiji, making it chilly and windy.  Starting tomorrow, the winds will get even stronger, especially along the coasts and islands, and the sea will be rough.

There is also a warning for strong winds and rough seas across all Fiji waters. Heavy waves might cause flooding in some coastal areas from Thursday to Saturday.

The FMS will monitor the weather situation and update forecasts as needed.
