EXPECT afternoon showers in the Western Division later this week, says the Fiji Meteorological Service.

Duty forecasters warned that because of a tropical disturbance located to the North-West of the country, a heavy rain alert has been issued for the Northern and Eastern parts of Fiji.

"The disturbance is located closer to Rotuma than to Fiji and we are asking mariners and people in the North to be aware that there could be issues with visibility and there is also a warning for gusty winds but do not expect anything like gale force winds to develop at this stage."
