According to the Meteorological Service Singapore, less wet weather and a few warm days can be expected in the first two weeks of September, compared to the last two weeks of August.

In the next two weeks, some parts of Singapore can expect short thundery showers between morning and early afternoon almost daily.

On a few days, Singapore may experience widespread thundery showers with occasional gusty winds between the early and pre-dawn hours as the Sumatra squalls move eastward toward the South China Sea.

Widespread moderate to heavy thundery showers can also be expected on one or two days.

In this period, daily temperatures are forecast to range between 24 degrees Celsius and 33 degrees Celsius. 

The daily minimum temperature may drop to around 22 degree Celsius on one or two rainy days, while the daily maximum temperature could rise to around 34 degrees Celsius in the latter half of the fortnight.

Some warm and humid nights can be expected due to prevailing winds from the southeast or south. Minimum night-time temperatures could possibly reach around 28 degree Celsius, especially over the south-eastern parts of Singapore.

Well-above average rainfall was recorded across the island in August, making it a relatively wet month. With a monthly total rainfall of 426.2mm, August 2021 is the wettest August for Singapore since 1980.
