The Weather in Kuala Lumpur

If patience is worth anything, it must endure to the end of time.
And a living faith will last in the midst of the blackest storm
........ Mohandas Gandhi

This picture with the Petronas Twin Towers and KL Tower in the background was taken on November 3rd, at 1:46pm at the Titiwangsa Lake Gardens (Taman Tasik Titiwangsa). It looks like it was going to rain soon as the sky was very dark with heavy rain clouds. But then again, I can see a silver lining behind the dark clouds.

Rain, Rain, Go away, come again another day, all of us want to play.

Would you believe me if I tell you that the skys cleared up by 2:02pm and it was bright and sunny again after a slight drizzle?

Besides drizzles, rain can also come in showers, a downpour or a thunderstorm. Drizzles are like 'Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head' . When rain comes in showers, we can be 'Singing In The Rain'. Sudden downpours may be in the form of heavy rains and strong winds in a small area but it can cause havoc like tress felling and drains overflowing. So, you may most likely be 'Crying In The Rain' if you are all wet with no umbrella, no raincoat and no fresh change of clothes while on the way to work.

Thunderstorms are a common phenomenon in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It occurs all year round and it can occur anytime; usually in the late evenings but it can also occur in the mornings and afternoons.

According to the World Meteorological Organization, a thunderstorm is one or more sudden electrical discharges, manifested by a flash of light (lightning) and a sharp or rumbling sound (thunder).

From my experience, there is usually heavy rain or a gail with frequent lightning and thunder and strong winds. It is definitely not a breeze during a thunderstorm. It can create havoc if it is prolonged. There will be flash floods and landslides.

Facts from the Malaysia Meterological Department:
Thunderstorms can occur throughout the year but are most likely to happen in the intermonsoon periods, namely April to May and October to November. Over land, thunderstorms frequently develop in the afternoon and evening hours while over the sea, thunderstorms are more frequent at night.

Do you like the rain? Are you afraid of the lightning? Have you ever witness a beautiful scene of ligthning as it strikes in the skys?

After the rain, it is time to look for rainbows. Once again, Malaysia is sunny skies and everything nice.

  7. The sky looks so ominous, it's hard to believe everything cleared in less than an hour. I wonder which city the clouds decided to dump their rain on? ;)
