A heavy rain alert remains in force for the Eastern and interior parts of Viti Levu, Vanua Levu, Taveuni, Kadavu and nearby smaller islands and the Lomaiviti group.

According to the Fiji Met Office, this is due to a trough of low pressure which remains slow moving to the North of Vanua Levu.

It is expected to gradually drift South over the group from later today.

Associated cloud and showers continues to affect the Northern and Eastern parts of the group.
