WEATHER SITUATION UPDATE FOR BRUNEI DARUSSALAM 18 MARCH 2023
18 Mar 2023
Brunei Darussalam is currently towards the end of second phase of the Northeast Monsoon, where generally Northeasterly wind is more dominant and the atmospheric conditions tend to be more stable with less rainfall activities.
Brunei Darussalam Weather Situation:
Weather condition over Brunei Darussalam is forecasted to be active today, Saturday (18th March 2023) until Sunday (19th March 2023). This condition is due to the presence of the low pressure system over our region. This has resulted in unstable and moist atmospheric conditions which are favorable for the development of rain clouds and it can also bring about windy conditions which can be gusty at times, especially during the crossing of heavy showers over our country.
Showers, occasionally heavy and thundery, are expected to affect several areas of the country. Wind speed may reach up to 45 km/h during or near heavy and thundery showers.
Over Brunei waters, sea condition is generally at slight to moderate state, with wave height of 0.6-1.2 m.
Members of the public are advised to take precautionary actions with respect to the forecasted active weather condition. Risk of falling trees is still expected during heavy showers and gusty conditions. There is also risk of flash floods especially at low-lying and flood prone areas as well as near the river banks during continuous heavy rain and also during high tide.
Public, road users and fishermen are advised to always be up to date with the latest weather forecast, advisory and warning issued by Brunei Darussalam Meteorological Department, and to take necessary actions to ensure safety.
We shall continue to monitor the weather conditions and will issue weather advisories or warnings if necessary.
