The Sultanate is still in the first phase of the northeast monsoon, where generally unsettled weather conditions with showers or thundershowers are expected especially during the night until early morning, the Brunei Darussalam Meteorological Department (BDMD) announced.
Weather condition over Brunei Darussalam is forecast to be active from yesterday until February 2.
The condition is due to the influence of Northeasterly surge and the formation of low-pressure area over the region, which enhances the development of rain clouds and thus increases rainfall activity in our country.
Showers, heavy and thundery at times, are expected with wind gust that may reach up to 50 kilometres per hour during or near heavy showers.
Meanwhile, over Brunei waters, sea condition is at moderate to rough state, with wave height of one metre to three metres.
Members of the public are advised to take precautionary actions with respect to the forecasted 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 high tide.
Sea condition is also dangerous to all small boat operations, sea recreational activities and sports.
The public is advised to keep up to date with the latest weather forecast, advisory and warning issued by BDMD, and take action to ensure safety.
BDMD will continue to monitor the weather conditions.
