Fiji does have a wet season, which is characterised by heavy, brief local showers and contributes most of the country’s annual rainfall. The wet season is normally from November to April and results from the southerly movements of the South Pacific Convergence Zone. Typically the smaller islands in Fiji receive less rainfall than the main Island with various amounts according to their location and size. Cyclones do occur in Fiji and are normally confined to wet season.
