WEATHER UPDATE FOR BRUNEI DARUSSALAM 20 NOVEMBER 2023
20 Nov 2023
1. General Weather Situation
Negara Brunei Darussalam is currently towards the end of intermonsoon period. During this period, local wind effects play an important role in governing our daily weather.
2. Brunei Darussalam Weather Forecast
Unsettled weather condition is still expected this week due to the combination of cold surge and a low-pressure system near our country that leads to more moist atmospheric condition, and thus enhancing the development of rain clouds.
Active weather condition is forecasted to persist until Sunday (26 November 2023) with occasional heavy and thundery showers and wind gust may reach up to 45 km/h during or near heavy thundershowers.
Over Brunei waters, sea state is generally at slight to moderate, up to 1.8 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 high 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. Sea state is dangerous to all small boat operations, sea recreational activities and sports.
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.
