THE tropical depression 15F affecting Fiji has evolved into a category one Tropical Cyclone but poses no direct threat to the country.

Fiji Meteorological Service director Alipate Waqaicelua said TC Kofi was moving away and was sitting between Fiji and Tonga.

"It's heading south-east at a speed of 24 kilometres per hour.

"It's category one now but could develop into a category two cyclone later," said Mr Waqaicelua.

"As far as Fiji is concerned, Lomaiviti and the Lau groups will feel some wind but within the next 24 hours the weather is expected to clear.

"It will also be much cooler from tomorrow as well.

"Major rivers, except Navua catchment, are at normal level and as for the rain, it has stopped in major areas."

Meanwhile, the heavy rain warning for Vanua Levu has been cancelled.

Mr Waqaicelua said Fiji should experience fine weather from Monday onwards.
