WEATHER SITUATION UPDATE FOR BRUNEI DARUSSALAM 23 JUNE 2020
23 Jun 2020
Our country is in Southwest Monsoon now whereby wind is blowing from 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.
Latest meteorological data shows that there is no tropical storm system observed within our region at the moment. While the weather forecast for this week, our weather condition would potentially be affected by a low-level atmospheric circulation which is expected to occasionally be around Borneo Island. This will increase the convective clouds activity and therefore the unpredictable weather conditions. Showers or thundershowers are likely to occur in most areas of the country for several days this week.
Meanwhile, sea state forecast for this week is at slight level between 0.3 to 0.6 meters and is likely to rise to moderate and rough level of about 1.8 to 2.2 meters on Friday until Saturday morning.
Our advice, during heavy showers or thundershowers, it is important for the general public to take note of the risk of flash floods especially at low-lying and flood prone areas. In light of this, members of the general public, road users and fishermen are advised to always be up to date with the latest weather forecast, advisory and warning issued by Brunei Darussalam Meteorological Department, and to take precaution and any necessary actions to ensure safety.
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 www.met.gov.bn or follow our Facebook (@bruneiweather), Instagram (@bruneiweather) and Brunei WX mobile application.
