A heavy rain alert has been issued for Northern Viti Levu which includes areas from Tavua through Rakiraki to Dobuilevu, Western Viti Levu, from Lomawai to Nadi through Lautoka to Ba, Western interior of Viti Levu which includes interior of Ba and Nadroga- Navosa and Yasawa and Mamanuca Group.

A heavy rain alert has also been issued for Western Vanua Levu which includes areas from Bua, Nasau, Lekutu, Batiri, Dreketi, Seaqaqa and Northwestern Vanua Levu from Labasa, Nadogo and Dogotuki.

The Fiji Meteorological Office says this is due to a trough of low pressure that is anticipated to affect the Fiji group from the West later tomorrow.

It says localised heavy rain may lead to flash flooding and overflow of drainage system in low lying areas, especially in low lying areas of Western Vanua Levu and Northwestern Vanua Levu, Northern and Western Viti Levu and the Western interior of Viti Levu.
