General Situation:

Brunei Darussalam is currently still in the first phase of the Northeast Monsoon, where generally unsettled weather conditions with showers or thunderstorms are expected to occur especially during the night until early morning.

Brunei Darussalam Weather Situation:

Based on the latest numerical weather prediction model, weather condition over Brunei Darussalam is forecasted to be active starting tonight, Monday (23 January 2023) until Sunday (29 January 2023). Active weather conditions are due to the influence of Northeasterly wind surge and the formation of low pressure system over our region. This will result in unstable and moist atmospheric conditions which is favorable for the development of rain clouds. The influence of the low pressure system could also bring about windy conditions which can be gusty at times, especially during the crossing of heavy showers over our country.

Showers, heavy and thundery at times, are expected with wind gust that may reach up to 45 km/h over land areas and up to 50 km/h over sea areas during or near heavy showers.

Meanwhile, over Brunei waters, sea condition is at moderate to rough state, with wave height of 1.0 to 3.0 meter.

Our Advice:

Members of the public are advised to take precautionary actions with respect to the forecasted active weather conditions. Risk of falling trees and landslide is possible during heavy showers and gusty conditions. There are high risks of flooding and flash floods especially at low-lying and flood prone areas as well as near the river banks during heavy rain and also during high tide. Rough sea conditions are dangerous to all small crafts, sea recreational activities and sports.

Public, including road users and also 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.
