WEATHER UPDATE FOR BRUNEI DARUSSALAM 7 FEBRUARY 2019
09 Feb 2019
Brunei Darussalam is currently entering the second phase of the Northeast Monsoon period. Based on Brunei Darussalam's climatology, February and March are the driest months with lesser amount of rainfall recorded when compared to the other months.
The country is expected to experience stable atmospheric conditions until the end of March. Breezy conditions are also expected at times when the northeasterly winds strengthen over the region. During this relatively drier period, isolated showers or thundery showers can still potentially occur around the country especially during the early morning and evening. Potential weather impacts during the second half of the Northeast Monsoon are:
•Drier conditions due to reduce rainfall activity;
•Tendency for mist and fog formations during the early morning hours which will result in reduction of horizontal visibility;
•Increase in air temperature exceeding 34 ℃;
•Prolonged dry period may increase the risks of bush or forest fires.
