PETALING JAYA: The bad weather in Peninsular Malaysia is likely to continue until early March, said the Meteorological Services Department. 

An officer with the department said the heavy rainfall seen lately was a normal phenomenon due to the north-east monsoon.  

He said flash floods were common in the east coast during the monsoon as the winds were blowing from the South China Sea, adding that the west coast was also affected as the winds were strong. 

“However, there will be dry spells,” he said yesterday. 

Another officer said the rainfall recorded last month in the Klang Valley was only slightly more than seen in November last year.
