BACK to school shoppers should expect showers today and tomorrow.

The word from the Fiji Meteorological Service is that a trough of low pressure with associated cloud and showers lies slow moving over the group.

The office, in an afternoon update yesterday, said this was expected to affect the group.

The official said occasional showers should be expected over eastern Viti Levu, Vanua Levu, Taveuni, Kadavu and northern Lau. Isolated heavy falls and thunderstorms should be expected with showers easing from the east later today.

The weather office also warned people going out to sea of moderate east to southeast winds with moderate to rough seas.

Showers are expected to be experienced over the interior and eastern parts of the larger islands, with afternoon or evening showers elsewhere.
