Active weather forecast until Saturday

The Sultanate is currently in the transition period which is expected to last until the end of November. During this period, local wind effects play an important role in governing the daily weather, according to the Brunei Darussalam Meteorological Department (BDMD).

The weather condition is expected to be active in the next few days due to the combination of a low-pressure system near the country with the local wind effect leading to more moist atmospheric condition, and enhancing the development of rain clouds.

Active weather condition is forecast to extend until November 11 with occasional heavy and thundery showers, especially over inland areas at late afternoon and at times spreading towards coastal areas at night.

Wind gust may reach up to 45 kilometres per hour (km/h) during or near heavy and thundery showers. Over Brunei waters, the sea state is generally at slight, below 1.0 metres.

Members of the public are advised to take precautionary actions. There is a risk of flash floods especially at low-lying and flood prone areas as well as near river banks during continuous heavy rain and also during high tide. The risk of landslides and fallen trees are also possible during heavy showers and gusty condition.

Public, road users and fishermen are advised to always be up to date with the latest weather forecast, advisory and warning issued by BDMD and to take action to ensure safety.
