The Fiji Meteorological Service says severe tropical cyclone Winston was located approximately 770km South-southwest of Kadavu and about 850km Southwest of Ono-i-lau. 


Currently, TC Winston is slowly moving southeastward but over the coming hours will gradually turn and move northeastward(indicated in the attached Official Forecast track).

On its projected track, TC Winston is expected to sail into the Southern Lau waters on Tuesday next week. The public, especially those in the Maritime regions of Fiji are advised to prepare accordingly.

For the rest of Fiji, while we enjoy the beautiful sunshine and the few intervals of showers today, it worth noting that the weather will change over the coming days as Tropical Cyclone Winston comes closer to us.

TC Tatiana which was located to the west of New Caledonia has weakened overnight and as of this morning it is no longer a Tropical Cyclone(now refer to as “Ex-TC Tatiana”).
