TD05F expected to approach Fiji Group tomorrow

An active trough of low pressure associated with Topical Disturbance, TD05F, is
expected to approach the Fiji Group from the west on Monday.

This system is forecasted to bring occasional to persistent periods of rain, heavy at times, along with a possibility of thunderstorms over the Fiji Group from Monday onwards.

In light of this forecast, the Nadi Weather Office has issued a Heavy Rain Warning for the whole of Viti Levu, Yasawa and Mamanuca Groups and across the Northern Division, while a Heavy Rain Alert remains in force for the rest of the Fiji Group.

As the trough associated with TD05F draws nearer to the country, the risk of flash flooding in low-lying and flood-prone areas is expected to escalate.

Consequently, disruptions to traffic and reduced visibility over both land and sea
are anticipated.

Additionally, a high-pressure system is currently generating strong winds over Fiji Waters and certain land areas.

A Strong Wind Warning remains in force for the land areas of coastal Rakiraki, southern Viti Levu (Sigatoka to Navua), Yasawa, Lau and Lomaiviti Groups, Taveuni
and nearby smaller islands, and Kadavu and nearby smaller islands.

Expect strong east to southeast winds with average wind speeds of up to 45 km/hr over these land areas.

While these conditions are expected to gradually ease later on Monday, gusty wind conditions can still be expected during heavy spells of rainfall.
