Brunei to transition to Intermonsoon season in April

Brunei Darussalam is still in the Northeast Monsoon season when active weather conditions usually occur in the afternoon and at night until the early morning.

The Sultanate is transitioning to the Intermonsoon season starting in April.

During this season, the weather condition is generally sunny during the day, while thunderstorms potentially occur over inland areas in the afternoon and spread towards the coastal and sea areas at night. Thunderstorm events can be heavy and gusty and there is a risk of flash floods or flooding during the Intermonsoon season.

Active weather condition is forecasted starting today until March 21 due to active development of rain clouds over the country. Occasional showers and thundershowers are expected, with wind gust up to 45 kilometres per hour during or near heavy showers or thundershowers.

Over Brunei waters, sea state is generally slight, below one metre.

The public is advised to take precautions with respect to the forecast active weather condition. There is risk of flash floods especially at low-lying and flood prone areas as well as near the river banks during continuous heavy rain that may last for over one hour and also during high tide. Risk of landslide and falling trees are also possible during heavy showers and gusty condition.
