However, a flood alert remains in force for low-lying areas adjacent to and downstream of the Navolau weather station and for low-lying areas adjacent to and downstream of the Waibogi station to the Sabata station.

Associated cloud and active rain bands will continue to affect the northern parts of the group.

People living on Vanua Levu, Taveuni and nearby smaller islands, Lau and the Lomaiviti group should expect periods of heavy rain and squally thunderstorms.

Strong clockwise winds with average speed of 45 kmph and momentary gusts to 70 kmph are also expected.
