Tropical Storm Nakri to affect Brunei (2019)

Tropical storm Nakri is expected to influence Brunei’s weather this week, after being observed at the South China Sea on Wednesday.

Windy conditions with occasional gusty showers or thundershowers, heavy at times, are expected especially at sea and coastal areas. Heavy showers may cause flash floods at the low-lying and flood prone areas, with risk of landslides. Wind gusts may reach up to 40-50 km/h.

Meanwhile, the sea state is expected to increase to a rough state of up to three metres, especially during gusty showers.

Brunei Darussalam is currently in the inter-monsoon period, which is the transitional period between the Southwest Monsoon to the Northeast Monsoon that will normally last until the end of November.

The Brunei Darussalam Meteorological Department (BDMD) advised the public, particularly road users and fishermen, to keep updated on the latest weather information and to take precautions for their safety.

The public may also contact the Duty Meteorological Forecaster at the BDMD Forecast Office, through the Weather Line at 114.
