Tropical Cyclone Harold is now a Category 5 storm.

According to the Fiji Meteorological Service in Nadi, TC Harold is expected to move across central Vanuatu tonight.

TC Harold is located about 100km West-Southwest of Santo or 370km Northwest of Vila, Vanuatu. This is also approximately 1270km West-Northwest of Nadi.

On the current track, it is expected to pass just to the southwest of the Fiji group from Wednesday.

As Harold moves closer to Fiji, the associated rain bands with northerly windy conditions can be expected from Tuesday onwards before the center passes on Wednesday, the Nadi Meteorological Service said.
