PETALING JAYA: There will be no rain in most parts of the country, making it a cooler than usual Chinese New Year, according to the Meteorological Department.
Department director-general Datuk Che Gayah Ismail said he expected the weather to persist until early March.
The north-easterly winds from China is contributing to this cooler than usual weather.
This weather is apparently normal during this time of the year.
Che Gayah said that the haze was making the days drier – pollutants from factories and cars are trapped in the air, particularly true in urban areas, creating localised haze.
“There will be no rain for at least five days. Only when it rains will these pollutants be washed away,” said Che Gayah.
The department has issued warnings of strong winds and rough seas for Kelantan, Terengganu, Johor, Pahang, Sarawak, Labuan, and Sabah.
