The Fiji Meteorological Office continues to monitor Tropical Disturbance 04F that is hovering between Solomon Islands and Vanuatu.
TD04F is currently slow moving but is expected to move southeast in the next few days to the north of Vanuatu and closer to Fiji.
The Weather Office says the potential for tropical disturbance 04F to develop into a tropical cyclone is low for the next 24 hours.
However, there is a high likelihood of a cyclone developing from Wednesday onwards when the system is expected to track close to Fiji and start affecting the group.
Fijians can expect associated cloud and showers to affect the Northern and Eastern parts of the group.
Cloudy periods with some showers and possible thunderstorms over Vanua Levu, Taveuni, nearby smaller islands, Yasawa and Mamanuca group, the eastern parts and the interior of the larger islands.
Elsewhere, cloudy periods with isolated afternoon or evening showers and possible thunderstorms.
