Brunei at tail-end of inter-monsoon period


BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN: Brunei Darussalam is currently towards the end of the inter-monsoon period which is expected to enter the southwest monsoon early June, according to the Brunei Darussalam Meteorological Department (BDMD).

During the inter-monsoon period, the Sultanate’s weather conditions are influenced by local wind effect, which typically results in showers or thundershowers in inland areas during the afternoon, affecting the coastal and sea areas at night, and sometimes persisting to early morning.

As of 11am yesterday, tropical storm Ewiniar was observed at coordinates 14.1°N 121.5°E, southeast of Philippines, approximately 1,300km away from Brunei Darussalam, which was forecast to move northeastwards away from Brunei.

Tropical storm Ewiniar is expected to indirectly influence Brunei’s weather, bringing slightly windy condition with potential gusty showers or thundershowers, especially at sea and coastal areas. The department said wind gust of up to 50km per hour is expected in or near heavy showers.

The sea condition is at a slight moderate state, with wave height of 0.4 metres (m) to 1.5m.

The public is advised to take precautions to the forecast active weather condition. There is a high risk of fallen trees and possibly landslides during gusty and heavy showers.

The risk of flash floods may also occur especially at low-lying and flood prone areas as well as near river banks during continuous heavy rain and also during high tide.

The public, road users and fishermen are advised to always be up to date with the latest weather forecast, advisory and warning issued by the BDMD and to take action to ensure safety. - Borneo Bulletin/ANN
