Weather at the moment in Fiji? Lots of rain on the forecasts

Is anyone in Fiji at the moment?

I've been looking at the weather forecasts as I'm heading off in less than two weeks on a long awaited first trip to Outrigger with my family.

The forecasts have rain and storms predicted every day this week and next :(

My question is - is it raining and overcast all day at the moment - or is it just brief afternoon showers?

I've been so looking forward to blue sunny skies and don't know how I'll keep my two kids occupied if its stormy every day...

No one can oredict unfortunately just how much rain. Have you looked at the long range forecast? This may help. The drier side of Fiji is the north western Mamanucas and Yasawa island groups but this makes little difference if there is a low pressure system over the whole area. Hopefully it will have passed by the time you get there.

I would love to know about the forecast for next week also, flying into Nadi then on to a small island north of Kadavu Island in seaplane for 4 nights, then back to Nadi. Is there a low? Where can I get good data? Thanks.

Just spent 4 nights near the coral coast and it rained heavily on one of those days. I was also hoping for sunny days through out but because parts of the country are currently under drought conditions, even I welcomed the downpour. Fingers crossed you do have good weather.

Fiji Met Service has a Facebook page where they publish good current information on the weather, I’ve found that helpful.

Thanks for your input!

I’ve been looking at the forecasts and checking them against this castaway bay webcam to see how accurate the forecasts are... so far it looks nice and sunny even when forecasts have said cloudy. Will be interesting to see over they next few days as rain and then thunderstorms predicted..
