BANYUMAS, Cilacap.info English – The southern Central Java region is forecast to experience a drought. Said BMKG weather analyst Tunggul Wulung Meteorological Station, Rendi Krisnawan.
“In general, dry season this year is predicted to rain, as has happened in last few days.” He said when contacted from Purwokerto, Banyumas Regency, Tuesday (7/7).
However, he said, rainfall in one decade (10 days, ed.) Is still in low category with intensity of rain that happened at that time mild to moderate.
BMKG has predicted that dry season in 2020 will be affected by weak La Nina.
He said based on a press release released by BMKG on June 27, 2020, BMKG Deputy Climatologist Herizal said that results of monitoring Pacific Ocean climate anomaly indicators, namely sea surface temperature of ENSO indicator area (Nino 3.4) until mid-June in Neutral conditions or temperature fluctuations sea level does not deviate more than 0.5 degrees Celsius from its normal climatological average.
“In release also mentioned that most of world meteorological institutions predict anomalies in sea level temperatures in Nino 3.4 until end of year range between Neutral and La Nina Weak.” He said.
In this case, weak La Nina condition is stated if sea level temperature deviation in ENSO indicator region is colder minus 0.5 degrees Celsius to minus 1.0 degrees Celsius from its normal climatology.
If La Nina conditions can occur, it can increase chance of increasing rainfall in parts of Indonesia so that dry season seems wetter because there is more rain than usual dry season.View All
