Heavy rain cancelled for Fiji

A heavy rain warning which was previously in force for Fiji is now cancelled.

Director Fiji Meteorological Service Ravind Kumar said the tropical depression poses no threat to the country and has a very low probability to develop into a tropical depression in the next 12-24 hours.

“Active rain bands associated with the system which were affecting the group has eased off and for the whole of Fiji occasional showers over most places with isolated heavy falls expected, ” Mr Kumar said.

“For Rotuma a strong wind warning which was previously in force has also been cancelled.”

Kumar further added that the low depression is moving south of the country and expected to move away from the Fiji group by early tomorrow morning.

Meanwhile, the current El Nino weather pattern is expected to continue until December and through to the early part of next year.

Kumar reiterated that they would continue to monitor the weather pattern.

“A strong El Nino is now established in the tropical Pacific which continues to strengthen. It is almost certain to continue through the October to December 2015 period and very likely through the early part of 2016,” Kumar said.

“As the country approaches the cyclone season, members of the public have been urged to monitor weather patterns and to be always prepared.”
