Indonesia Experiencing Rising Temperatures, Not Heatwave: BMKG

24 October 2019 08:31 WIB

TEMPO.CO, JakartaThe Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysics Agency (BMKG) clarified that Indonesia is currently experiencing rising temperatures which is not categorized as a heatwave. 

“Therefore, Indonesia is not experiencing the heatwave phenomenon,” said BMKG Deputy of meteorology, R. Mulyono R. Prabowo on Wednesday.

Historically, he said, the highest temperature that has hit Indonesia has not exceeded 40 degrees celsius with the BMKG records stating that the hottest temperature hitting Indonesia was at Central Java’s Semarang in 2015 with a recorded 39.5-degree celsius. 

His public announcement follows the questionable information spread across social media platforms which warns of an impending heatwave set to hit Indonesia. BMKG’s official stand on this is by deeming the information as a mere hoax. 

BMKG explains that Indonesia’s geographical position along Earth’s equator does not allow a weather dynamic, such as heatwave, to happen in Indonesia. R. Mulyono also said that the hot temperature currently happening is an annual cycle caused by the pseudo motion of the sun. 

As of October 20, 2019, three BMKG monitoring posts in Sulawesi recorded a maximum of 38.8 degrees celsius.
