IT is going to be a wet Valentine's weekend for lovebirds in the North as the Nadi Meteorological Centre forecasts showers over Vanua Levu, Taveuni, Lau and the Lomaiviti Group.

Fiji Meteorological Services director Alipate Waqaicelua attributed the wet weather forecast to a trough of low pressure that remained slow moving over Fiji with associated cloud and showers.

Mr Waqaicelua said the forecast to midnight tomorrow for the North was more occasional showers.

"Labasa should experience occasional showers and a few thunderstorms with heavy falls at times and afternoon or evening showers and thunderstorms on Sunday," he said.

"The same outlook applies to Savusavu and the rest of the Northern Division.

"We expect the wet conditions to ease off by Wednesday next week."

Meanwhile, the wet conditions failed to dampen the spirits of the young and the restless who dashed into Labasa Town to buy gifts for their loved ones.
