Monsoon transition period until early November

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia will go through a monsoon transition period from tomorrow until November.

The Malaysian Meteorological Department said this normally leads to localised heavy rain and thunderstorms in a short period of time with frequent strong winds especially in the afternoon until early night.

According to a statement from the department today, most of the districts in the west coast states and interiors of the peninsula, west coast of Sabah and central Sarawak would be affected.

"The public have been advised to be more alert about the impact of frequent thunderstorms during the monsoon transition period such as heavy rain, strong winds and lightning," the statement said. — Bernama
