FLASH flooding and heavy thunderstorms were expected to hit parts of Fiji last night and early this morning.
That was the warning from the Fiji Meteorological Office at 3:36pm yesterday.
The flash flooding is expected to occur as a result of heavy rain in Viti Levu, Yasawa and Mamanuca groups, Kadavu and nearby smaller islands, as well as the southern Lau and Lomaiviti Group.
"An active trough of low pressure with associated cloud and rain lies over Fiji and is gradually moving eastwards," the weather office website stated.
"Rain is expected to ease from tonight (last night). Heavy rain may lead to flash flooding.
"It is expected to affect the country till early today."
Since 9am Tuesday, Nacocolevu recorded the most rain with 100.2mm, followed by Vanua Balavu which recorded 78.4mm of rain and Laucala Bay with 63.3mm of rainfall. Nausori recorded 32.1mm of rain.
It added the weather tomorrow should be fine apart from brief showers in the eastern and interior parts of the larger islands with cool nights expected in all parts of the country.
