Heavy rain alert

Repeka Nasiko
Friday, May 16, 2014

MORE rain is expected this weekend after the weather office issued a heavy rain alert for the whole of the Fiji group.

Fiji Meteorological Services director Alipate Waqaicelua said a trough of low pressure was moving from the North of the group causing heavy showers.

"We expect the whole of the group to experience rainy conditions from tomorrow (today) because of this trough of low pressure," Mr Waqaicelua said.

"There is also another system that is coming in from the West of the group and it is expected to sort of merge with the trough causing some heavy rain and associated thunderstorms.

"We are looking at the possibility of these conditions to continue into the weekend."

He said the Nadi weather office would get more detailed information of the continued impact of the heavy rainy conditions once the trough was over the group.

"At this point, we won't be able to tell which particular areas of the group will be affected.

"That is why we issued the alert for the whole group. The finer details we will determine tomorrow (today)."
