4] Grib files out 10 days  looking for Lows that effect Savusavu etc;-

Now we all know Gribs over 4 days are alittle suspect but Gribs do often

give us indications of  adverse weather  past 4 days and out to 10 days.

There is some troughs hovering well north / north west of  Savusavu  it   
appears Savusavu may experience a weak trough passing  over from 22 to 24 Aug,   then out approx 7/8 days the next trough may effect Savusavu.
