There is a tropical cyclone "Bruce" a fair way off the West Australian coast. Is is classified as severe but at the moment no issues. As we will be at Navini from 24th Dec, till 7th Jan, I hope it keeps its distance, otherwise we could be in for an interesting holiday, not..

I'm here now, it's been overcast with afternoon rain and heavy rain overnight here at Denarau. No humidity at all last 3 days, a beautiful breeze.....it's our 4th trip and the coolest yet. We head out to the islands in 2 days let's hope the cyclones stay away!!

Glad you are having good weather, luclen.....night time is a good time to rain. We enjoyed sitting on our deck with a drink, or two, or more watching the downpours.

Fingers crossed the cyclones stay away. Certainly don't need any major ones like Evan last year.

Ugh. We leave next week. I've been avoiding looking at the weather and it seems we're in for clouds and showers our entire time there :(

Could depend where you are staying sometimes it can be raining in Nadi and the islands are bathed in sunshine. Fingers crossed.

You would have to be extremely unlucky to have full days of clouds and rain all day, every day for your entire stay.

The following has 7 day forecasts for the various regions of Fiji thru December 25. Appears the weather is improving next week.
