Weather - Denarau Feb 09

Hi

We are scheduled to go to Fiji next week but we are nervous because the weather forecast for the past 3 days and the next 7 days says thunderstorms and showers everyday.

Has someone recently returned from Fiji and/or can confirm how the weather has been in the last week or so?

Thanks

Konide,

That would be almost a daily forecast for any hot humid tropical location during rainy season. The weather in the last week has been quite good but a bit of rain was had.

There are no garantees at this time of year (its also cyclone season) but Fiji has had its fair share of rain already this season. When you booked you would have considered its seasonality.

Perhaps speak to your agent about your resorts subseptibility to flooding and consider other resorts.

Hi,

We are also flying out next week, just read on the fiji news online that more rain and flooding is expected in Nadi.

Fingers crossed for fine weather!

Hi

Hope you do see some sunshine. It is still in middle of the wet season and anything can happen the mainland (and Denarau) get showeres at the best of times yu have a better chance on the islands.

I am also going to Denarau in two weeks. I think we will book a lot of day trips in case it's raining on the mainland...have our fingers AND toes and whatever else crossed for good weather. AFternoon showers are OK just no more big storms...please.

Thanks for all the replies. We are aware and understand its the wet season so expect that there will be rain. Only we are hoping it does not rain all day every day. Theres nothing like blue skies on an island getway.

If you are staying on an island then you should be right. We just got back from Plantation (malolo) for seven days and only had rain one afternoon. Sometimes it gets a bit humid but the rain the one afternoon took the humidity away for the next two days. It rained on the mainland most afternoons but always seemed to miss us.

Everything drains pretty quick so when we got back to Nadi (morning) iw was all dry and weather great.

We were at The Warwick during the tropical depression in Jan and felt very safe and secure there in solid concrete/brick buildings. Don't know how it would be in a bure at ground level in a cyclone?
