Active weather forecast over Brunei

Weather conditions over Brunei are forecast to be active until Tuesday due to the low pressure near Philippines causing southwesterly wind to bring showers, which can be heavy and gusty at times, crossing the Sultanate, the Brunei Darussalam Meteorological Department stated.

The influence of northeasterly surge also enhances the development of rain clouds and increases rainfall in Brunei. The wind speed may increase up to 45 kilometres per hour during or near heavy showers or thunderstorms, while over Brunei waters, sea state is at slight to moderate, with wave heights below 1.5 metres.

The Sultanate is currently in the first phase of the northeast monsoon, where generally unsettled weather conditions with showers or thunderstorms, heavy at times, are expected especially at night until early morning. The public is advised to take precautionary actions with respect to the forecast active weather conditions.

The risk of falling trees and landslide are possible during heavy showers and gusty conditions.

There is a risk of flash floods especially at low-lying and flood prone areas as well as near river banks during heavy rain and also during high tide.
