KUALA LUMPUR: Most parts of the country will experience less rainfall during the June-August south-westerly monsoon season, according to the Meteorological Department.
The western part of the peninsula is likely to be affected due to the active phase of the monsoon.
However, coastal areas stretching from the south of Perak to the west of Johor will experience thunderstorms, heavy rainfall and strong winds in the morning.
This is due to the formation of the typhoon lines known as “Sumatras”.
Haze is also expected in urban and industrial areas due to the long dry spell, and cross-boundary pollution resulting from forest burning in a neighbouring country is another threat.
Heavy rain and strong winds are also expected in Sabah and Sarawak. – Bernama
