Hello Priscilla,

Over the past 2 years we have noticed that the weather in June July and August is much cooler;
requiring a blanket at night.  During the rainy/cyclone season we can have 3-4 days of gray
and heavy rain at a time.   Mostly though, the weather is nice - 79-84 degrees Fahrenheit.
The humidity is quite high and does take a bit of getting used to and 2-3 showers a day
if doing anything physical.  We have lived on Taveuni for 4 1/2 yrs and have had a house here
since 2009.  We do like Fiji, even with the challenges that come from living in a third world
country on a fairly remote island.  We do have airplanes  and ferrys to the main island.
I hope this is helpful
