Meke says as of midday Tropical Depression 03F was located 500km West of Nadi and is currently slow-moving adding that rain bands continue to affect the group.

“As of the last 24 hours we have had rain over most parts of the Western Division, over Viti Levu and the Northern Division with some strong and gusty winds as well experienced with rain coming through. So this type of weather we should expect as we move into the weekend and into early next week.”

Meke says should TD03F develop into a cyclone it will be Category Two at the most and will remain to the West of Fiji.

He adds that according to their forecast of the current system, the weather should begin to clear by Thursday or Friday.
