Kota Kinabalu: Sabah may be in for another dose of heavy rain from next month until the end of January, next year.

The northeast monsoon on the whole is predicted to last from Nov. 13 until March.

Eight episodes of heavy rain is expected to affect Kelantan, Terengganu, Pahang and Johor in November and December this year. Heavy rain is expected to be focused on west of Sarawak, and north and east of Sabah starting next month until January, 2018.

During the northeast monsoon, incessant rain for up to three days may cause flooding in low areas and areas prone to flooding. If heavy rain occurs at the same time as high tide, the risk of flooding will be higher.

The public are advised to be vigilant and prepared in facing the monsoon season as well as being alert to heavy rain warnings from the Meteorological Services Department (MMD) through their website www.met.gov.my, mobile application myCuaca, their Facebook @malaysiamet, their Twitter @malaysiamet, SMS service 15888 and the MMD hotline at 1-300-22-1MET (1368).
