The Fiji Meteorological Services predicts that category one Tropical Cyclone Mona will leave the Fiji Group by early Tuesday.
Senior forecaster, Amit Singh says on its current projected path, TC Mona will continue to track southwards.
Singh adds the system will move towards the northern Lau group and then take a further southwest turn.
“We see the centre to be located over the Northern Lau waters early tomorrow morning. Tomorrow by mid-morning over the Southern Lau waters and by tomorrow evening or night to move out of Fiji waters.”
Singh says the weather will start to clear later tomorrow into Tuesday.
He adds after TC Mona leaves the Fiji group, the weather office does not expect any other low pressure system to affect Fiji.
The Fiji MET predicts more troughs will cast over Fiji this week.
The weather office says the major impact expected from TC Mona is rain and flooding.
