A heavy rain warning is now in force for Fiji.

The Nadi Weather Office says a flash flood alert remains in force for low lying areas and flood-prone areas of Viti Levu and North Eastern Vanua Levu which includes Nabouwalu, Kubulau, Savusavu and Saqani.

They say a trough of low pressure with associated clouds and rain is affecting Fiji.

There is also a risk of lightning strikes during thunderstorms, flooding of small rivers, creeks and crossings, landslides with continuous rainfall over a prolonged time.

The Weather Office further says there could be poor visibility in areas of heavy rain for drivers and reduced visibility at sea as well.

They add rainy weather is expected to continue into next week and the weekend as well.

Meanwhile, the National Disaster Management Office says rain has been falling for the last couple of days and with already saturated soil, there is a possibility of flash floods and landslides in areas of heavy rain and flood prone areas.
