Here's That Rainy Day

A Tropical Storm in Australia Brings a Rainy February Week to Bali.

(2/18/2002) A tropical cyclone that appeared over Australia's Northern Territory on Monday, February 11, brought nearly five days of rain and overcast weather to Bali's tourism centers. Cyclone Claudia's main brunt was reserved for Australia but its tailwinds whipped up heavy rains and strong gusts on an island where the "rainy season" is more typically marked by intermittent showers followed by intermittent sunshine. For five days from February 11, rains pelted the island of Bali with Denpasar and the surrounding areas remaining largely wet and overcast. Meteorologists are predicting rainy conditions may persist over the region until the end of February.

Heavy rain in Bali over the past weeks have resulted in isolated flooding and mudslides on Bali's north coast.

Proving that even the weatherman can be wrong, sunny and clear skies re-emerged over Bali's capital of Denpasar on Saturday, February 15th.
