A Heavy Rain Alert is now in force for the Northern Division and the Northern Lau group.

The Fiji Meteorological Office says a trough of low pressure lies to the north of Fiji and is expected to gradually drift south and affect the northern parts of the group from later today.

They say it is expected to bring occasional rain, heavy at times, over the areas under Heavy Rain Alert.

The Nadi Weather Office says occasional with heavy rain over in Nasau, Lekutu, Dreketi, Batiri, Seaqaqa, Labasa, Savusavu, Wainikoro, Vanuabalavu and Mago is expected especially in the afternoon, overnight or early morning.

Localised heavy falls may lead to flash flooding in low-lying and flood-prone areas, minor roads and iris crossing with some disruption to traffic flow and poor visibility.

Meanwhile, there is a possibility of clear skies or sunny breaks in between the rain bands, especially during the early part of the day.

The Fiji Meteorological Service will continue to monitor this weather event and update warnings and forecasts accordingly.
