—The study is intended to evaluate the accuracy of windstorm-producing thunderstorms issued warning by Malaysia Meteorological Department (METMalaysia) in Peninsular Malaysia. Besides, the study also evaluate information which been analysed from thunderstorms warning either can be used as an indicator to know the risks of windstorm-producing thunderstorms. Findings from the study show that existing mechanism that been used in Peninsular Malaysia for detect and forecast windstorm-producing thunderstorms generally ineffective or specifically effective to detect thunderstorm occurrence but not to detect and forecast thunderstorm by-products especially strong winds. Information analysed from thunderstorms warning also is not significant to be use an indicator to know the possibility of windstorm-producing thunderstorms occurrence and identify the districts which prone to be experience of this disaster.
—Effective, Peninsular Malaysia, warning, windstorm-producing thunderstorms.
