“The disturbance is also forecast to cause a surge in the winds, resulting in hazardous seas for small craft operators,” the DDM said in an October 14, 2020 weather update.

As such, the weather tonight is expected to be cloudy mainly after midnight, with an 80 per cent to very high chance of periods of showers and thunderstorms and the weather tomorrow is forecasted to be cloudy with an 80 per cent or a very high chance of periods of showers and thunderstorms, some likely heavy at times.
