Month of May began, the weather in Kuching and major parts of Malaysia had started to gone terribly wrong with high temperature of even 37 degree celsius is recorded.
There have been already many people complaining on the extremely hot and unusual weather through conversations and even on social media like Facebook and Twitter. It is not only me that feels such weather is unusual, but also all the people. It is even reported on the news. It’s a very hot month.. I saw a weather statistic, stating that the usual humidity in Malaysia of over 70 percent has dropped to around 40 percent. It is not only hot, but it’s also arid or dry…very dry….until you will feel breathless if you stay outdoor for a long time.
The Malaysian Meteorological Department, meanwhile, recorded 19 areas affected by haze including Malacca, Kuantan, Kuching, Kota Kinabalu, Sepang, Ipoh and Petaling Jaya.it said the current dry period was due to the tropical storm Aere over north-east of the Philippines and low-pressure area over the Andaman Sea.
