Feeling a little hot lately?
Well, it’s because Malaysia is currently experiencing the Southwest monsoon which results in a hot and dry climate, from now until mid-September, according to the Malaysia Meteorological Department (MetMalaysia).

However, there’s no heat waves detected so far.
MetMalaysia told BERNAMA, “Based on constant monitoring of heatwaves, Wednesday (July 21st), there is no area in the country which has been exposed to any heatwaves.”
Additionally, the department’s meteorological stations had yet to record temperatures higher than 35 degrees Celsius for three days in a row, hence, it is not expecting the temperature to exceed 40 degrees.
40.1 degrees Celsius was the highest temperature ever recorded in Malaysia, when the strongest El Nino wave hit the country in 1998.
Stay indoors and keep yourself hydrated okay!
