Over the past few days, a majority of West Malaysians have been experiencing scorching hot weather. Some reports have claimed that temperatures were as high as 40 degrees Celsius. Honestly, we thought this was the start of a heatwave!

However, according to a statement from the Malaysian Meteorological Department’s (MET Malaysia) director-general, Alui Bahari, those reports were false, as the highest recorded temperature last week was at 36 degrees, which is below the temperature of heat waves (37 degrees).

“The sun is also not in the Equator line now, and based on the current monitoring, the thunderstorms in the afternoon have taken place in several parts of the peninsula following the weakening of the typhoon Lan.”

“This thunderstorm is normal during the current monsoon transition phase,” the director-general said, according to the New Straits Times.

Typhoon Lan is reportedly to blame for the extreme weather in West and East Malaysia. While most of the peninsular experienced hot weather, there were thunderstorms in Sabah that had caused floods and landslides in parts of the state. 

However, as the super typhoon hit Japan on Monday (23rd October), parts of West Malaysia experienced thunderstorms.

Meanwhile, for those who are still experiencing the scorching hot weather, MET Malaysia advised the public to not conduct open burning, stay hydrated, and reduce outdoor activities.
