A Tropical Cyclone named Zaka by the Nadi Weather Office formed close to Tonga early this morning and is now tracking southwest towards the New Zealand area.

Duty Forecaster at the Nadi Weather Office confirmed that the system developed rapidly overnight on the outskirts of Fiji waters at around 1 o’clock this morning.

He said the system will not have any direct or indirect effect on the Fiji group due to its current location and projected path.

The weather office said the system is now in New Zealand’s area of responsibility and they are closely monitoring Tropical Cyclone Zaka.

Meanwhile, for the Fiji group, the Nadi Weather Office predicts fine weather for most parts of the country for the next few days.
