WEATHER UPDATE FOR BRUNEI DARUSSALAM 06 NOVEMBER 2023
06 Nov 2023
1. General Weather Situation
Negara Brunei Darussalam is currently in the transition period which is expected to last until the end of November 2023. During this period, local wind effects play an important role in governing our daily weather.
2. Brunei Darussalam Weather Forecast
Our weather condition is expected to be active in the coming next few days due to the combination of a low-pressure system near our country with the local wind effect that leads to more moist atmospheric condition, and thus enhancing the development of rain clouds.
Active weather condition is forecasted to extend until Saturday (11 November 2023) with occasional heavy and thundery showers especially over inland areas at late afternoon and at times spreading towards coastal areas at night. Wind gust may reach up to 45 km/h during or near heavy and thundery showers.
Over Brunei waters, sea state is generally at slight, below 1.0 meters.
3. Our Advice
Members of the public are advised to take precautionary actions with respect to the forecasted active weather condition. There is a 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. Risk of landslide and fallen trees are also possible during heavy showers and gusty condition.
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.
