SHAH ALAM, Jan 24 — Thunderstorms, heavy rains and strong winds are expected in four Selangor districts until 8pm today, says the Malaysian Meteorological Department (MetMalaysia).

In a warning issued at 4pm on Facebook, the agency said the affected areas are Klang, Kuala Langat, Hulu Langat and Sepang.

“The inclement weather was also forecasted to hit Perak (Hulu Perak), Pahang (Bentong), Negeri Sembilan (Jelebu, Seremban and Port Dickson), Sarawak (Limbang),  Sabah (Sipitang, Tenom, Kuala Penyu, Beaufort, Nabawan, Tawau and Kunak) as well as Labuan,” the agency said.

MetMalaysia issues warnings whenever signs indicate a thunderstorm with rain intensity exceeding 20 mm that is close to or is expected to occur for more than an hour.

A thunderstorm warning is a short-term warning valid for a period not exceeding an hour for a single release.
