PETALING JAYA: The east coast is experiencing rough seas, strong winds and high waves, which can pose a danger.
As such, the Meteorological Department (MetMalaysia) has issued a Category 2 warning that winds from the north-east measuring between 50kph and 60kph, with waves of up to 4.5m, will hit the coast of Kelantan, Terengganu, Pahang and east Johor until tomorrow.
“The strong winds and high waves in these areas are dangerous to all shipping and coastal activities, including fishing and ferry services,” it said.
Category 1 refers to winds from 40-50kph and waves between 2.5m and 3.5m.
The highest Category 3 is when wind speeds go beyond 60kph with waves higher than 4.5m.
The department also issued a Category 1 warning for Sarawak’s coast areas until tomorrow.
It said this would present a danger to small boats, as well as maritime and recreation activities.
In a separate notice, the department said there was continuous rain in Terengganu, Kelantan and parts of Perak and Pahang yesterday evening.
On Friday, the department said it did not expect a “cold surge” from mainland China, which could cause extreme monsoon rainfall in Malaysia until Jan 5.
