Our country is transitioning from Inter-monsoon to Southwest Monsoon which is expected to start next week. The general light wind, blowing from various directions will shift to Southwest direction.

Atmospheric conditions tend to be quite stable with minimal thundershowers occurrences as compared to the intermonsoon period during the past 2 months. Southwest Monsoon typically last up until September. During the peak of the monsoon period which is around August, the country usually experiences hazy conditions due to the generally dry weather across the Southeast Asian region.

Southwest Monsoon also coincides with the season of active development of cyclonic systems, such as tropical storms and typhoons,
over the Northwest Pacific Ocean and South China Sea. When such system develops, depending on the location of the system in relation to Brunei Darussalam, our country tends to experience unsettled weather conditions with occasional gusty thunderstorms.

We shall continue to monitor the weather conditions and will issue weather advisory or warnings if necessary. We would also like to advise the public to keep up to date with the latest weather information by visiting our website at or follow our Facebook (@bruneiweather), Instagram (@bruneiweather) and Brunei WX mobile application.
