Officials of Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park (TNBTS) have reported extreme cold weather on Mount Bromo, where the temperature has dropped to minus 3 degrees Celsius.
The park recorded the temperature drop on Sunday, national park spokesman Syarif Hidayat said. He said frost and frozen dew were detected in one area in Cemorolawang.
“We have yet to see much frost around here but there are many signs that the situation will lead to that,” he said as quoted by kompas.com on Wednesday.
He explained that the frost appeared due to extreme weather in the current dry season.
Unlike in previous years, tourists are unable to witness the frost this year as the national park remains closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The park is still restricted for tourists,” Syarif said. (dpk)
