JAKARTA - The Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency (BMKG) predicts the weather for Monday, August will be sunny and cloudy in the Greater Jakarta area.

Based on official BMKG data in Jakarta, this condition is predicted to occur in several cities, with varying air temperatures in various regions.

Cities such as Banda Aceh, Serang, Bengkulu, Yogyakarta, Gorontalo, Bandung, Pontianak, Banjarmasin, Palangkaraya, Samarinda, Tarakan, Pangkal Pinang, Mataram, Kupang, Makassar, Kendari and Palembang are expected to experience sunny cloudy weather. Meanwhile in Gorontalo, Surabaya and Manado, sunny weather is predicted with temperatures ranging from 23 to 34 degrees Celsius.

For several other cities, such as Denpasar, Jakarta, Jambi, Semarang, Bandar Lampung, Ambon, Jayapura and Mamuju, cloudy weather has the potential to occur. Meanwhile, light-intensity rain is expected in Samarinda, Tanjung Pinang, Pekanbaru, Medan and Manokwari, while Padang is expected to experience heavy rain.

When night falls, cloudy sunny weather is still predicted to dominate a number of big cities in Indonesia, such as Denpasar, Serang, Bengkulu, Bandung, Surabaya, Pontianak, Banjarmasin, Samarinda, Tarakan, Pangkal Pinang, Bandar Lampung, Mataram, Makassar, Pekanbaru, Palembang, and Manado. Meanwhile in Yogyakarta, Jakarta, Semarang, Palangkaraya, Tarakan, Ternate, Jayapura, Manokwari, Tanjung Pinang and Mamuju, cloudy weather has the potential to occur. Meanwhile, sunny weather is predicted in Gorontalo, Kupang and Kendari.

Light-intensity rain is expected in several cities, such as Banda Aceh, Jayapura, Manokwari, Padang and Ambon. While Medan is expected to experience rain with moderate intensity, and Jambi will experience rain accompanied by lightning.

In recent times, DKI Jakarta and its surroundings have experienced significant rainfall. This shows the efforts of the Government of Indonesia in using weather modification technology to deal with air pollution in urban areas in Jakarta, Bogor, Depok, Tangerang and Bekasi (Jabodetabek).

Coordinator of the Weather Modification Technology Management Laboratory of the National Research and Innovation Agency (BRIN), Budi Harsoyo, explained that the government has used weather modification technology by sprinkling as much as 800 kilograms of seedling salt in several locations. This technology has been used in various countries such as China, South Korea, Thailand and India, and is the first time it has been implemented in the Greater Jakarta area.

According to him, rain water is the most effective way to reduce air pollution. However, if drought inhibits rain, weather modification technology could destabilize the atmosphere in a way similar to sprinkling dry ice at a certain altitude. This can disrupt the layers of the atmosphere and create changes in the stability of the air.

Thus, weather forecasting and weather modification technology are important in dealing with changes in weather conditions and efforts to maintain air quality in various regions in Indonesia.
