23 Nov 2019
Brunei Darussalam will be entering the Northeast Monsoon towards the end of November 2019 and is expected to persist until March 2020. The first two months of Northeast Monsoon (December and January), also known as the rainy season, normally have the highest amount of rainfall as compared to the other months. During this period, unsettled weather conditions with occasional heavy showers or thundershowers are expected especially during the night and early morning.

During the rainy season, it is important for the general public to note that the risk of flooding or flash floods at low-lying and flood prone areas, and the risk of landslides will be high especially when heavy rainfall occurs for more than 2 hours. The risk of severe flooding may occur during the event of very heavy rain coinciding with high tide. Strong surges from the Northeasterly wind may also result in the increase of wave height over Brunei waters to rough state.
