Brunei Darussalam is currently still in the first phase of the Northeast Monsoon, where generally unsettled weather conditions with showers or thunderstorms, can be heavy at times, are expected especially during the night until early morning.
Brunei Darussalam Weather Situation:
Based on the latest numerical weather prediction model, weather condition over Brunei Darussalam is forecasted to be active starting tonight, Tuesday (3 January 2023) until Sunday (8 January 2023). Active weather conditions are due to the influence of Northeasterly wind surge and the formation of low pressure system over our region. This condition has resulted in unstable and moist atmospheric condition which is favorable for the development of rain clouds. The influence of the low pressure system could also bring about windy conditions which can be gusty at times, especially during the crossing of showers over our country.
Showers, heavy and thundery at times, are expected with wind speed that may reach up to 40 km/h during or near heavy showers.
Meanwhile, over Brunei waters, sea condition is still at slight to moderate state, with wave height of 0.6 meter to 1.6 meter.
Members of the public are advised to take precautionary actions with respect to the forecasted active weather conditions. Risk of falling trees and landslide are possible during heavy showers and gusty conditions. There are high risks of flooding and flash floods especially at low-lying and flood prone areas as well as near the river banks during heavy rain and also during high tide. Sea conditions are dangerous to all small crafts.
Public, including road users and also fishermen, are advised to always be up to date with the latest weather forecast, advisory and warning issued by Brunei Darussalam Meteorological Department, and to take necessary actions to ensure safety.
We shall continue to monitor the weather conditions and will issue weather advisories or warnings if necessary.
