On Recent Weather of Bali

Vacationers who plan to spend their time sunbathing in Bali may find a small problem in their long-prepared plan. The rainy season comes late and the windy weather period comes early this year. They collide at the end of December 2007 which results in a kind torrent rain combines with strong wind and the span of the rain may last for a couple of days. And it is surely a bad news for the beach lovers.


The rainy season that usually starts at the end of September comes late this year. Bali begins to receive a good amount of rain at the end of December this year, and the rain last more than two days causing minor floods in various parts of the island and the worse news is the center of sunbathing and surfing in Bali, Kuta, is vulnerable to flood. The torrent rain which poured on Tuesday (12/25/07) until Wednesday (12/26/07) caused a 1–km flood on Dewi Sri Street Kuta and paralyzed the traffic.

And to add more problems to the sunbathers, the period of ferocious wind comes quite early this year. Kapitu (7th month in Caka Lunar Calendar) which is identified with the turbulent weather in Bali starts in late December this year, a month ahead of its regular schedule (Kapitu usually starts late in January). The wild wind of Kapitu blows mainly on the island at night. Fallen trees or collapsed structures (most of them are the impermanent structures) are common phenomena in this month. This adds a flavor of strong wind to the torrent rain of rainy season.


Another feature of Kapitu which create a considerable annoyance to the beach-goers is the exceptionally high waves which are produced by the strong wind. This minimize the chance of the surfers especially the beginners to ride the waves of Bali beaches.
