Continous rain forecast in Johor, Sabah and Sarawak, says MetMalaysia

KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian Meteorological Department (MetMalaysia) is forecasting a monsoon surge from Dec 27 to 30, which could cause continuous rain in eastern Johor, eastern Sabah and western Sarawak between Dec 28 to 30.

A monsoon surge is a cold wind from Siberia that causes strong winds and rough seas in the South China Sea.

According to MetMalaysia, strong winds and rough seas are forecast in the waters of the South China Sea, including the eastern coastal waters of the Peninsula from Dec 26 to Dec 30.

“Members of the public planning a trip to the area are advised to remain vigilant and keep abreast of the situation,” said MetMalaysia. – Bernama
