The tropical depression located south-west of Nadi this morning is weakening and people should not be threatened as it will not turn into a cyclone, says Fiji Meteorological Services director Alipate Waqaicelua.
Waqaicelua told FijiLive the tropical depression is now moving south-east of the group and people will not face anything worse than what they have experienced before.
He said rain is expected with fresh strong gusty winds and it is expected to pass later today or tomorrow.
He also said fine weather is developing right behind the tropical depression and people should expect sun and dry winds once the rain stops.
Meanwhile the strong wind warning remains in force for the land areas of Yasawa and Mamanuca group, Western Viti Levu, Kadavu, Vatulele, Beqa and nearby smaller islands.
