Today, rain still affects some regions in Indonesia
BMKG predicts that the weather in Indonesia today will be dominated by cloudy to rainy conditions with light to moderate intensity (Antara).

The Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency (BMKG) predicts that some areas in Indonesia will be cloudy to rainy today with light to moderate intensity. In addition, some areas will experience rain and lightning.

This condition is caused by the cyclonic circulation observed in the North Pacific Ocean in Papua and in the mountains of Papua. This cyclone forms an area of ​​meeting and slowing down of the wind speed or convergence that extends around the North Pacific Ocean of Papua, the Sulu Sea and the waters of the Moluccas.

Other convergence areas extend from the Indian Ocean, southwest of Lampung to western West Sumatra, from Aceh to the Gulf of Thailand, the west coast of West Kalimantan, Central Kalimantan, Central Sulawesi, the Sulawesi Sea, the Moluccas Sea, the Halmahera Sea and along the southern coast of mountainous Papua.

Areas of wind convergence or merging were also observed and extended over the Andaman Sea, South China Sea, and Indian Ocean southwest of Banten. These conditions may increase the potential for rain cloud growth around the cyclonic circulation and along convergence or merging areas.

The surface wind forecasts in Indonesia are generally dominated from the east and southeast, with speeds ranging from 10 to 50 km/h. Also be aware of the possibility of strong winds in the regions of Aceh, West Nusa Tenggara and East Nusa Tenggara.

Air temperatures generally range from 14 to 34 degrees Celsius with humidity ranging from 50% to 100%.

In general, sea wave heights in Indonesia range from 0.5 to 2.5 meters. Also consider the possibility of tidal flooding on the northern coast of Central Java.
