Occasional heavy gusty thundershowers expected

Brunei Darussalam is in the Southwest Monsoon now, with winds blowing from the Southwest direction.

Atmospheric conditions tend to be quite stable with minimal thundershower occurrences as compared to the inter-monsoon period in April and May.

The Southwest Monsoon typically lasts up to September.

During the peak of the monsoon period (around August), the country usually experiences hazy conditions due to the generally dry weather across the Southeast Asian region.

The latest meteorological data shows that there is no tropical storm system observed within our region at the moment.

The weather forecast for the next few days will still be influenced by the local wind effects with occurrences of showers and thundershowers at the inland areas in the afternoon, moving towards the coastal areas in the late afternoon and early evening.

Heavy gusty showers and thundershowers are expected occasionally and winds may reach up to 50 km/h. Sea state forecast for the next few days is at slight level below 0.6 metres.

Members of the public are advised to take note of the risk of flash floods especially at low-lying and flood prone areas during heavy showers or thundershowers, as well as the risk of falling trees during gusty conditions.

Public, road users and fishermen are advised to always be up to date with the latest weather forecast, advisory and warnings issued by the Brunei Darussalam Meteorological Department, and to take precaution and any necessary actions to ensure safety.

The department continues to monitor the weather conditions and will issue weather advisory if necessary.
