Low temps in KL and other cities in the peninsula


KUALA LUMPUR: It was a chilly night coupled with mist in the morning for city dwellers here and also several other cities in the peninsula as the temperatures dipped to 22°C, the lowest in months.

A similar low temperature was also recorded on Dec 16.

On both Saturday and yesterday, the mist lasted up to about 11am in Klang and only dissipated as the day got warmer.

The overcast sky left many wondering whether the haze was back.

Most areas in the Klang Valley were drenched because it rained practically the whole day yesterday.

A check on weather.my showed that temperature in Kuala Lumpur dipped as low as 22°C while the highest was 25°C throughout the day.

In Pahang, timeanddate.com’s record showed that the temperature in Kuantan was at 22°C since 8am yesterday.

With rains reported, the cold spell lasted throughout the day and is expected to last until today.

Malaysia is currently gripped by cold weather due to the north-east monsoon season, which is commonly known as the “winter monsoon” and also the La Nina phenomenon.

According to the Malaysian Meteorological Department, overcast skies and continuous rain are common during this period where the peninsula is concerned.

Temperatures will drop and result in higher humidity which can lead to mists forming and possible floods in low-lying and flood-prone areas.

The cold and rainy season will continue possibly until early February and the monsoon season is expected to end in March.

The department warned that continuous heavy rainfall for several days can result in floods in low-lying and flood-prone areas, and the risk of flooding may worsen if heavy rainfall coincides with high tide.

In addition, continuous and strong north-easterly winds can cause rough seas and big waves in the waters of the South China Sea.
