TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Meteorology Climatology and Geophysics Agency (BMKG) estimates a longer drought occurs on several regions. About fifteen regions will experience dry season more than a month.
"Usually, the rain still falls several times during dry season," said Erwin Makmur, the Head of Sub Section of BMKG's Climate Early Warning, to Tempo on Friday, September 6.
Erwin said that the weather condition is relatively normal, but it was predicted that there will be no rain to fall this period. Those who work on farmlands should anticipate this condition.
Based on BMKG's monitoring, the drought will occur in northern and southern side of Banten, Banyumas, Kudus, Pati, Sukoharjo, and most of East Java's areas.
Eastern parts of Indonesia such as Bali, central part of West Nusa Tenggara, most parts of East Nusa Tenggara, western coast of South Sulawesi and southern part of North Sulawesi, will also be swept by the drought as well.
The peak of dry season is predicted to arrive this month, up until October. "Light rain will fall again in the end of November," said Erwin.
