It is likely that a Tropical Cyclone could be heading to the Fiji group after Christmas.
A broad low pressure area is located to the far north of Fiji.
A significant low pressure 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 pressure 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.
