MetMalaysia: Continuous rain in Sabah, Sarawak, Labuan


KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian Meteorological Department (MetMalaysia) expects continuous rain in several areas in Sarawak, Sabah and Labuan Monday (Sept 26).

It said the affected areas in Sarawak are Mukah, Bintulu, Miri (Subis, Beluru, Miri and Marudi) and Limbang.

In Sabah, the affected areas are Papar, Putatan, Penampang, Kota Kinabalu, Tuaran and Kota Belud; interior areas of Sipitang, Kuala Penyu and Beaufort; Kudat; and Labuan.

First Category strong winds and rough seas are also expected to occur in the waters off Sabah’s west and east coasts, as well as Labuan starting from Monday to Friday, with wind speeds of 40 to 50 km/h and waves of up to 3.5 metres.

MetMalaysia also said that thunderstorms with heavy rain and strong winds were expected to occur in the northern states of Peninsula Malaysia, including Kelantan and Terengganu, from Sept 28 to 30 as a result of Typhoon Noru, which has made landfall in the northern Philippines and was expected to move west towards Vietnam.

Following this, westerly winds are expected to increase in the country’s regional areas based on the MetMalaysia Weather Research and Forecasting Model (MET-WRF) analysis; European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) and Global Forecast System (GFS).
