A broad low pressure area is located to the far north of Fiji. A significant low is expected to develop over this area and move towards the group by Friday.
The low pressure system has a high chance of developing into a tropical cyclone. 

The weather forecasting models are in agreement of developing the low into a tropical cyclone but has some differences on the forecast track.
While one weather model tracks it over Vanua Levu the others are tracking it just to the west of Viti Levu. The most possible track will be determined in the next 72 hours as the low moves closer to the group.

The weather for Christmas should be fine but expected to deteriorate as we head towards the weekend.

Rotuma could expect heavy rain and strong winds as early as boxing day.

As the system moves closer to Fiji, we should expect damaging to destructive force winds and heavy rain which may lead to flooding.  Storm surges could also be expected along the coast.

For mariners, strong winds with rough seas could be expected from Wednesday and anticipated to further deteriorate in the weekend as the system closes in.

Members of the public are advised to remain alert and vigilant. Take warnings and advisories from relevant authorities seriously when issued and remain prepared at all times.

The situation is closely monitored and any alert and warning will be issued as and when significant changes are anticipated. Members of the public are also advised to remain updated with the latest weather information.
