PETALING JAYA: Heavy rainfall and thunderstorms are expected to occur in the afternoons in the country over the next two to three weeks, according to the Malaysian Meteorological Department.
Its spokesman Dr Hisham Mohd Anip said there would be heavy rainfall when the inter-monsoon season kicks in, resulting in both warm and wet weather.
Dr Hisham said this was because the sun would be over the southern hemisphere.
“As the position of the sun is over Malaysia, we will experience more heavy rainfall and thunderstorms in the afternoons.
“During this inter-monsoon period, flash floods will also be common,” he said, adding that areas like Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Malacca and Johor were likely to experience such floods.
However, the inter-monsoon season would not last for long and is expected to end by the last week of October.
Dr Hisham said Malaysians could expect less rain this week, due to the changes in the wind pattern.
With the country now in the tail end of the southwest monsoon season, the temperature is expected to be in the normal range of between 32°C and 34°C.
“Usually, the wind is stronger but it has weakened over the past few weeks,” said Dr Hisham.
