FREAK STORM TO HIT KL ON 20th Nov

You've probably already received at least one forwarded email claiming that a freak winter storm will hit KL at 7pm on Friday, 20th of November. We've received 3, all with different claims, but basically stating that a freak weather phenomenon is due to hit the country on the 20th of November.

Siti Aizza Sarmani of the Malaysian Meteorological Department has clarified that a winter storm in the country would be not possible. She however isn't able to confirm at this point in time the possible weather conditions that are expected on the 20th. (heads up to perazzi8 for sending this in)

Thank you for writing to Malaysian Meteorological Department. We have received few emails from the public regarding the Winter Storm. For your information, our country's location which is near to equator make no possible for us to experience winter season/winter snow like the northern countries. Malaysia experiences tropical weather condition which is hot and humid. During rainy season (normally during November until February), we will periodically experience the cold surge (cold and dry winds from Siberian High area). This cold surge does not cause 'winter storm' like the public thought, only influencing the weather condition of our country, in terms of an increase in precipitation or wetter weather condition. This is the reason's why November to February is known as 'rainy season'.
For the cold surge to occur on November 20, 2009; we are unable to predict it yet, since our global weather model is only able to predict daily weather condition of at least 7 days before the date of occurrence (the weather forecast for November 20, could be obtained as early as on November 13). However, the long range weather pattern/weather outlook of the country could be predicted as early as 6 months.
We would like to advise public to not to take rumours seriously especially through 'sms'. Malaysian Meteorological Department is always monitoring the weather of our country closely, and any effects due to the extreme weather condition, we will issue official press statement from the department to inform the public and will distribute it to the trustworthy channel such as government's tv, radios and major newspapers.

So, there you have it. Personally i think that we might experience a severe drop in temperature on the 20th, but not enough to cause anything more then a flood inducing thunderstorm. Ironically enough, doomsday movie 2012, based on the Mayan end of Calendar prophecy opens in cinemas nationwide on the 12th.

If it really happen I will feel really happy can experience snow for the first time. If you think i am crazy or anything. Now in the world everything is possible if did not happen now it will sooner or later it will happen. So just pray hard and be happy hoping it come.

Even the Malaysian something something not sure it is really or bluf by saying that we can’t check it only can check for the first 7 days only. Lately something it is really hot and something it is really cold maybe the cold is the sign of snow will be dropping from the sky. Haha maybe i am overreact or sarcastic. Who do not want a change! Snow for once in a life time in our own country.
