IMPERIUMDAILY.COM – JAKARTA – The Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency (BMKG) said that the results of weather analysis in Indonesia showed that in the future, extreme weather would still be affected.
“The results of the latest atmospheric dynamics analysis show that there is still the potential for heavy rains in several regions of Indonesia for the next week,” said BMKG Deputy for Meteorology R Mulyono R Prabowo in the official release of BMKG, Sunday (5/1).
The analysis shows a reduced pattern of low pressure in the Northern Hemisphere (BBU) and an increased pattern of Low Pressure in the Southern Hemisphere (BBS) region.
This can lead to the addition of wet air mass in the territory of Indonesia, due to increased activity of Asian Monsoons.
The low-pressure pattern at BBS (around Australia) can also form a convergence pattern (air mass meeting) and wind bends to significantly increase the growth of rain clouds in Indonesia, especially in the southern equator.
Based on the prediction model, the activity of the Madden Julian Oscillation (MJO) wet phase is predicted to be active around the territory of Indonesia over the next week, this condition can certainly increase the potential for rain cloud formation to be quite significant in Indonesian territory.
BMKG estimates, in the coming week some regions in Indonesia have the potential to experience extreme weather and rainfall with heavy intensity accompanied by lightning and strong winds.
Starting in the 5-8 January 2020 period, several regions that will experience extreme weather include Aceh, North Sumatra, West Sumatra, Riau, Riau Islands, Jambi, Bengkulu, Bangka Belitung, South Sumatra, Lampung, Banten, DKI Jakarta, West Java, Central Java, DI Yogyakarta, East Java, Bali, NTB, NTT, West Kalimantan, Central Kalimantan, North Kalimantan, East Kalimantan, South Kalimantan, Gorontalo, North Sulawesi, Central Sulawesi, Southeast Sulawesi, South Sulawesi, Maluku, North Maluku, Papua West, and Papua.
While for the period 9-12 January 2020 the same conditions occurred in Aceh, North Sumatra, West Sumatra, Riau, Riau Islands, Jambi, Bengkulu, Bangka Belitung, South Sumatra, Lampung, Banten, DKI Jakarta, West Java, Central Java, DI Yogyakarta, East Java, NTT, West Kalimantan, Central Kalimantan, North Kalimantan, East Kalimantan, South Kalimantan, Gorontalo, North Sulawesi, Central Sulawesi, West Sulawesi, South Sulawesi, Southeast Sulawesi, Maluku, North Maluku, West Papua, and Papua.
While the potential wave heights reaching more than 2.5 meters occur in the waters of the North Natuna Sea, East Java Sea, North Anambas Islands-Natuna Islands, South West Java to Sumba, Bali Strait – Lombok Strait – South Straits Alas, Waters of Sawu Island – Rote, South Indian Ocean Java to NTT, Banda Sea, Kai-Aru Islands, Eastern Sulawesi Sea.
