Given the trade wind currents that blow in the Fiji Islands from the southeast, the areas more exposed to these coordinates are more exposed to rain than those exposed to the northwest. Even during the dry period in the southeastern areas and islands, several inches of rain fall, with intense but short-lived thunderstorms. Therefore, the western areas of the islands are preferred, especially if there are mountainous reliefs that allow the accumulation of rain clouds. Fiji can be affected by tropical cyclones during the months of November to April, especially between January and February, but these are not frequent events.
