Expect a wet Diwali

PEOPLE in some parts of the country can expect a wet Diwali today.

The Nadi Weather Forecasting Centre has predicted showers, which will increase to rain from today, in parts of the country.

But people living in the Western parts of the country can expect a bit drier weather, thus high chances of having good Diwali celebrations.

Director Meteorology Alipate Waqaicelua said showers were expected in the Eastern parts of the Fiji Group, including places in the interior.

Mr Waqaicelua said afternoon showers were expected over eastern parts of Vanua Levu, Viti Levu and the outer islands.

He said showers were expected to increase to rain from today because of the southeast wind and the trough of low pressure approaching the entire Fiji group.

The Western Division is likely to experience afternoon and evening showers over the next few days.

Meanwhile, people living in the Central Division have been experiencing rainfall over the past few days, with cool winds too.
