General Situation:

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

Brunei Darussalam Weather Situation:

Weather condition over Brunei Darussalam is forecasted to be active starting tonight, Monday (30 January 2023) until Thursday (2 February 2023). This condition is due to the influence of Northeasterly surge and the formation of low-pressure area over our region, which enhances the development of rain clouds and thus increases rainfall activity in our country.

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

Meanwhile, over Brunei waters, sea condition is at moderate to rough state, with wave height of 1.0 meter 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 are possible during heavy showers and gusty conditions. There is risk of 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. Sea condition is also dangerous to all small boat operations, 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.

We shall continue to monitor the weather conditions and will issue weather advisories or warnings if necessary. Latest weather information, advisories and warnings can be accessed easily through our mobile app, Brunei WX, as these weather information, advisories and warnings can be received immediately after they are issued.
