Abstract: This study presents a characteristic intermonsoon weather situation over the Malay Peninsula. The Coupled Ocean/Atmosphere Mesoscale Prediction System (COAMPS) is used to investigate the mesoscale details of the simulated sea breeze circulations over the Malay Peninsula on 23 April 2002. The occurrence of sea breeze collisions occurring in the inland region of the southern Malay Peninsula is noted. On the peninsulascale, convection was first initiated along the low-level convergence line that became established along the west coastal region of the Malay Peninsula in the early afternoon. Deep clouds that led to thunderstorms developed in the northwestern part of the Malay Peninsula after the sea breeze encountered the mountain wave induced under the ambient easterlies above the mountain ridge line. The convective activity was further enhanced over the central Malay Peninsula because of the interaction between sea breeze front and gap winds from the mountains. This case study suggests that the Malay Peninsula is a potentially fertile ground for many dynamically interesting case studies of land–sea breeze circulations.
