THE Nadi Weather office has revealed that more rain is expected over the coming days as two low pressure systems are located near the group.

Although the systems pose no threat to the group or of turning into a depression, their associated troughs could mean more rain for the country.

The weather office revealed a connection between two associated troughs resulted in heavy rains over some parts of the country.

According to forecasters, associated troughs from a low pressure system located to the southwest of the group and another system to the north of Vanuatu have linked together causing heavy rain to most parts of the group.

The weather officers say troughs will persist over the next few days causing rain.

Flash floods can also be experienced in the northern parts of the group while a strong wind warning has also been issued by the office.

The office also revealed rough seas would be experienced and mariners are to exercise caution as visibility will be very poor.
