Tuidraki: Weather to clear

THE wet weather conditions experienced across the country will clear by this afternoon, says acting weather director at the Fiji Meteorological Service Aminiasi Tuidraki.

"There is a trough over the country but most of the rainfall is centred in the sea between Viti Levu and Vanua Levu," he said.

Mr Tuidraki added the heavy rain warning that was in place yesterday would be called off in stages as the low pressure system associated with it dissipates. "What people can expect once this system clears is a drop in temperature as a ridge of high pressure advances from the southwest."

He added river levels at all major waterways were well below the critical level and there were no indications that levels would rise and threaten riverbanks.

"There could be some localised flooding in some low lying areas and this could as a result of small creeks breaking their banks.

"However, this should also clear as the high pressure system sets in."

A heavy rain warning was issued yesterday morning for eastern Viti Levu, Vanua Levu, Taveuni and nearby smaller islands, Yasawa, northern Lau and the Lomaiviti Group.
