Rainy Season In Fiji

It's high summer here in Fiji, which means RAIN - lots of it!  Here in western Viti Levu, rainy season days usually start off with brilliant sunshine.  As the sun climbs higher in the sky, temperatures and humidity levels rise.  By mid afternoon, huge thunderclouds are towering overhead.  The storms roll in fast, with cracking lightning and blinding sheets of rain that quickly flood our road with several inches of water.  A couple of hours later, the skies clear up; the air temporarily cooled. Sunsets this time of year are especially colorful, often accompanied by a double rainbow arching over the mountains to our east.
