Brunei Darussalam has entered the second phase of the Northeast monsoon which is expected to persist until March 2023. The atmospheric condition tends to be more stable with less rainfall activities, the Brunei Darussalam Meteorological Department stated.
Relatively, the months of February and March are categorised as two of the driest months in a year.
However, the latest weather model indicates the Sultanate is expected to experience active weather conditions at times in February, especially during the afternoon and at night.
The rainfall for February is forecast to be slightly above the average value at 190-200 millimetres.
The slight increase in rainfall is due to the presence of La Niña phenomenon over the Pacific Ocean.
The public is advised to take measures and precautionary action to the possibility of active weather conditions.
