The community is shocked by the potential for stormy weather that will occur in Greater Jakarta today, December 28, 2022. In preparing for potential storms, the public can monitor the potential for storms in Jabodetabek through SADEWA BRIN.
Information about potential storms was revealed by BRIN climatology researcher Erma Yulihastin via his personal Twitter account @EYulihastin on Monday (26/12/2022). Erma said that there would be extreme rains up to devastating storms in the Jakarta, Bogor, Depok, Tangerang and Bekasi (Jabodetabek) areas.
“The Potential for Great Floods in Jabodetabek. Whoever you live in Greater Jakarta and especially Tangerang or Banten, please be prepared for extreme rain and violent storms on December 28, 2022,” Erma wrote.
Current storm cloud monitoring (26/12) at 18.38 WIB shows:
“It is this dynamic process and connectivity between the two storm systems that allows extreme rain to be transferred from the sea to the land.”

It is also said that the terrible storm from the sea will be transferred to land through two routes. First the west route through the westerly winds that bring rainstorms from the sea. Both from the north via strong surface winds.
“So Banten and Jakarta-Bekasi will be the central locations where the storm attacks start from noon to evening on December 28, 2022,” he continued.
A different statement was made by the Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency (BMKG). BMKG Deputy for Meteorology Guswanto predicts that the weather on December 28 2022 will not be a storm, but rain with moderate and heavy intensity.
“Based on the BMKG weather forecast, December 28, 2022 will generally rain with moderate to heavy intensity but not storms,” said Guswanto.
