Have you been feeling a little cold lately, especially at night? If you are staying in the Klang Valley, you may notice that the weather is almost similar to Genting Highlands or Cameron Highlands.
BERNAMA reported on Tuesday, December 17 that Malaysians in Peninsula were greeted by cold weather at night and fog in the morning, which hid the iconic Petronas Twin Towers from the naked eye. It lasted up to about 10am just as the day was getting hotter.

The temperature in the Klang Valley has dropped to 22°C, the lowest in months due to the Northeast Monsoon season, which is commonly known as the winter monsoon. The lowest temperature recorded at Cameron Highlands overnight was 15°C.
According to Jailan Simon, Director-General of the Malaysian Meteorological Department (MetMalaysia), it is a common phenomenon in Malaysia as the monsoon winds which formed over the Siberian-Mongolian region flow through northern China across the South China Sea and the peninsula.
“Overcast skies and continuous rain are common during this period where the peninsula is concerned. It causes the temperature to drop and results in a higher humidity which can lead to mists forming, ” he said.
He also added that the cold and rainy season will continue, possibly until next February. As for the monsoon season, it is expected to end in March next year.
