THE SOUTHWEST MONSOON (JUNE-SEPTEMBER 2018)

04 Jun 2018

Based on the monsoon cycle, Brunei Darussalam will enter the Southwest Monsoon from June to
September. Climatology, the activity and amount of rainfall during this period are slightly less than that of
the last inter monsoon season. Normally, starting in late June, the atmospheric conditions in the
Southeast Asia region, including our country are relatively stable and thus contributes to dry and hazy
weather conditions.

Nevertheless, by August to September, occasional crossing of squally showers are the typical weather
phenomenon affecting our country. This is attributed to the indirect impacts of active squalls or typhoons
across the Northwest Pacific Ocean and South China Sea.
In terms of weather impacts that may occur during this monsoon season are generally dry, hot and hazy.
Nevertheless strong winds are expected when there are formations of squally showers crossing from sea
areas towards our country.

We will continue to monitor the weather conditions, and shall issue weather advisory and warnings if
necessary. For the latest weather update, the public may contact our Duty Meteorological Forecaster at
our Weather Forecast Office, through our Weather Line 114. The public may also visit our weather update

Wallahualam Bissawab.
