After experiences a prolonged dry season, Bali has now entered its rainy season confirmed by torrential rains that swept across South Bali on Saturday, November 16, 2013.
The Bali Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency (BKMG) is urging people residing in Bali to be prepared for extreme weather conditions over the coming weeks and months.
As reported by Beritabali.com, Nyoman Suarsa of the BKMG-Denpasar office confirmed that the rains have now begun to regularly fall in all parts of Bali, except Nusa Penida. “The appearance of low-pressure systems is producing high winds and high waves,” said Suarsa on Friday, November 15, 2013.
Suarsa warned that Bali is at risk of destructive small whirlwind storms (angin putting beliung) and strong coastal winds. He said current weather conditions have accelerated the creation of rain clouds, especially in Central and North Bali.
