Heavy rain warning for Brunei

Brunei Darussalam is approaching the end of the Southwest Monsoon. The country is currently experiencing unsettled weather conditions with occasional gusty showers associated with the development of cyclonic systems, such as tropical storms and typhoons, over the Western Pacific Ocean and South China Sea.

As of 2pm yesterday, Typhoon Saudel was observed at the Northern part of South China Sea at approximately 1,324km away from Brunei Darussalam. Typhoon Saudel is expected to continue moving westward, further away from the country.

Unsettled weather conditions are expected until the weekend, especially over the sea areas. Heavy showers with occasional strong winds are expected with wind gust reaching up to 50km/h. The sea state over Brunei waters is moderate to rough, of up to two metres.

The public is 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.

The public is advised to be up to date with the latest weather forecast, advisory and warnings issued by the Brunei Darussalam Meteorological Department (BDMD), and to take precaution to ensure safety.
