The Klang Valley experienced some of the coldest weather it had in months, with temperatures dipping as low as 22°C on Sunday night (December 15) and kept low through Monday morning (December 16).
It got so cold that KL’s signature skyscrapers were hidden under a cloud of mist and fog.
The temperature in the Klang Valley dropped to a whopping 22 degree Celsius, lowest in this month due to the Northeast Monsoon, which is commonly known as the cold weather monsoon. According to a report by Remaja, the director of the Malaysian Meteorological Department, Jailan Simon, this is a common phenomenon in Malaysia that’s formed in the Siberia-Mongolia region through the north of China across the South China Sea and Penisular Malaysia.
He also added that this monsoon season will continue until next February 2020.
This particular cold season we’re experiencing is brought upon by the Northeast monsoon which lasts from November till March.
