Over the course of the next six months, Malaysia is about to be hit by severely wet weather as the La Niña phenomenon is about to hit our shores, according to the The Malaysian Meteorological Department (MetMalaysia).

During the La Niña events, winds are blowing stronger than usual, pushing more warm water towards the Asian continent. Constant heavy downpours and rainy months result in this occurrences, also bringing with it massive floods of which can cause massive devastation as previously reported in the Klang Valley from December 2021 until March 2022.

Speaking to The Star, MetMalaysia director-general Muhammad Helmi Abdullah stated that the wetter weather will typically peak towards the year-end and will possibly carry forward into early next year. 

""La Nina can last between five and 18 months. Based on international forecast models, the coming La Nina is expected to be at a weak or moderate strength."

Helmi also stated that together with the northeast monsoon season, which usually occurs during November, the wet conditions along the east coast could continue all the way up till March next year.

Further tropical storms are also expected to be prevalent in the west Pacific Ocean during this period, resulting in more moist weather in Sabah as well as northern Sarawak.

The previous case of La Niña previously occurred back in 2020, and was expected to last for just a year. Unfortunately, the episode lasted all the way until 2023, bringing floods and disasters in its wake.

Let us hope that this years case may not be as detrimental and long lasting as its predecessor and we can return to our normal weather in no time.
