High pressure system directs strong wind flow
November 7, 2018 12:10 am
A high pressure system to the southwest of the Group has been directing a strong southeast wind flow over Fiji waters for the past few days.
The Fiji Met Office says strong winds coinciding with moderate swells of 2 to 3 metres over Fiji waters and high tide that is expected to be more than 2 metres near the coast, pose a risk of inundation over low lying coastal areas.
It says that there is moderate chance the waves riding on the high tide reaching the coastline can over wash vegetation line and even on to the roads along the coral coast.
The moderate swells will gradually ease from tomorrow.
For those planning to spend the day at the beach along the coral coast today, are advised to be very cautious and alert of big waves.
