Brace yourself for bad weather from tomorrow as a tropical disturbance(TD06F) was located just north‑northeast of Samoa this morning, and is expected to drift southwest between Fiji and Tonga over the next few days.

The Nadi Weather Office says there is a low risk that the system will develop into a tropical cyclone over the next three days.

TD06F is anticipated to track southwest onto the Fiji Group and bring strong winds and rain over the Group. 

The anticipated weather is expected especially over the eastern and southern parts of Fiji from later tomorrow and gradually spreading to the rest of Fiji till Sunday.

Localised heavy rain may lead to flash flooding of low lying areas.

A flood warning remains in force for low lying areas, areas adjacent to and downstream of Naqali Station; and a flood alert remains in force for all low lying areas adjacent to and downstream of Navolau and Korovou. A flood alert remains in force for all low lying areas adjacent to and downstream of Rewa Catchment.
