TROPICAL Disturbance 07F will not pose a threat to Fiji, says Fiji Meteorological Service director Ravind Kumar.

He said TD07F was located near 16.4 degrees south latitude and 178.4 degrees east longitude or about 70km north-northwest of Labasa or 100km west-northwest of Udu Point at 6pm yesterday.

"TD07F has picked up speed and moved faster than anticipated," he said.

"It is currently moving east-northeast at 30km/hr and expected to pass very close to Vanua Levu this (yesterday) evening."

He said on its current track, TD07F was anticipated to lie east of Udu Point today and likely to further intensify into a Tropical Depression as it moved towards Samoa.

However, Mr Kumar said an associated trough of cloud, rain, fresh to strong and gusty winds was expected to affect the parts of Fiji until today.

He said heavy rain warnings for Yasawa and Mamanuca groups, Vanua Levu, Taveuni and nearby smaller islands, Lomaiviti and Lau groups and strong wind warnings in force for Yasawa and the Mamanuca groups, Vanua Levu, Taveuni and nearby smaller islands and the northern Lau Group will remain in force and gradually be lifted.
