Forecast for rainy weather

Shayal Devi

THE Nadi Weather Forecasting Centre has forecast a rainy weekend for the Western Division.

Fiji Meteorological Service acting director Aminiasi Tuidraki said this was caused by south easterly winds over the Fiji group.

"This will release some showers and because of the heat, it will trigger convection so we can expect this weather throughout the weekend," he said.

Mr Tuidraki also said the tropical depression over New Caledonia had been upgraded to a tropical cyclone and as a result the West would be feeling its effect. "When we had Tropical Cyclone Ian, it was to the east of Fiji but this cyclone is towards the west and hence some of the rain bands are affecting the Western side of Fiji."

Mr Tuidraki said there was no strong wind warning for mariners at the moment.

However, low-lying areas could be flooded as a result of heavy rain.
