JAKARTA – Today, Tuesday (8/12/2023), the weather in several areas of Jabodetabek reached a temperature of 35 degrees Celsius. Phenomenon heat This evidently cannot be separated from the existence of a phenomenon The boy which will delay the peak of Indonesia’s rainy season until next year.
There are quite a few people venting on social media about the hot weather. Even on X (formerly Twitter), the hot keywords had become trending topic.
For your information, the Agency of Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics (BMKG) has predicted that the peak rainy season for 2023-2024 will begin only between January and February 2024. At a press conference, the head of BMKG, Dwikorita Karnawati, revealed that El Nino will still remain at normal levels in the month of December to February 2024.
On the BMKG website it is stated that El Nino is a phase in which the trade winds that usually blow from east to west begin to weaken or may change direction. Widespread warm sea surface temperatures in the eastern and central Pacific correlate with this weakening.
As warm water moves eastward, evaporation, clouds and rain move away from Indonesia. This implies the possibility of a greater and longer drought in Indonesia.
In contrast to the waters of Indonesia and the Western Pacific region which are generally warm (warm pool), El Nino creates sea surface temperature anomalies that are cooler than usual in the central and eastern equatorial Pacific Ocean. Since the cloud growth zone shifts from Indonesia to the center of the Pacific Ocean during Nino, less rain falls in Indonesia.
Dr Georgy Falster of the Australian National University (ANU) said there was a change in the Pacific Walker circulation, i.e. a shift in the atmospheric pattern over the Pacific Ocean which resulted in a delay in the rainy season because the atmospheric flow moved more slowly.
