BASED on data from the Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency (BMKG), the weather forecast for Friday (14/6) shows that areas of decreasing wind speed or convergence are observed in several regions in Indonesia.

Areas of decreasing wind speed extend over the waters west of Aceh, the waters west of Aceh, the waters west of West Sumatra to Riau, Central Java to West Java, East Nusa Tenggara, the north of North Kalimantan, Southeast Sulawesi to West Sulawesi, the Sulawesi Sea to the Philippines Maluku Sea to the northern waters of West Papua, the Seram Sea and central Papua.

In addition, wind meeting or confluence areas were also observed in the Riau Islands and the South China Sea. This condition has the potential to increase rain cloud formation along the convergence or confluence region.

Apart from that, BMKG said dry air intrusion from the Southern Hemisphere is known to cross the South Papua region and the Arafuru Sea. This situation is known to generate wet water vapor ahead of the penetration boundary, making the Banda Sea, Maluku, Seram Sea and Papua Island warmer and more humid.

Temperature and humidity

The air temperature generally ranges from 20 to 35 degrees Celsius, with humidity from 45 to 100 percent.

Fire category

Based on the Fire Danger Rating System Map, several areas in the category highly prone to fires include Aceh, Yogyakarta, East Java, West Nusa Tenggara, East Nusa Tenggara, South Sulawesi, Maluku and South Papua.
