It adds that TD03F is expected to be slow-moving to the southwest of Fiji till early next week due to a high-pressure system situated to the far south of Fiji.

The Weather Office says the Tropical Disturbance is expected to bring continuous heavy rain over Fiji.

It adds that rain has been experienced in the last couple of days and with already saturated soil, there is a high risk of landslides and severe flooding.

The Weather Office says the system is also expected to bring strong to damaging gale force winds of up to 85 kilometres per hour with a wind gust of up to 120 kilometres per hour over western and southern parts of Vanua Levu, Yasawa and Mamanuca Group, northern and western parts of Viti Levu, Beqa, Vatulele and Kadavu.

It says people living along the coast can expect significant wave heights of about four to five metres over southwest Viti Levu waters, northern Vanua Levu waters,

Yasawa and Mamanuca waters, Vatu-i-Ra and Kadavu passages.

This poses a high risk of sea travel especially for small crafts and is not suitable for coastal activities.

The Fiji Meteorological Service will continue to monitor this weather event and issue warnings and forecasts accordingly.
