More rainfall is expected in the last two weeks of September as compared to the first half, the Meteorological Service Singapore reported on Friday (Sep 16).

Short-duration thundery showers are forecasted between the late morning and afternoon on most days as prevailing monsoon conditions are expected to persist in Singapore and the surrounding region over the next fortnight.

This is a result of a convergence of winds which may influence the development of Sumatra squalls bringing widespread thundery showers and gusty winds.

The Meteorological Service Singapore has also stated that a few warm days are to be expected particularly in the third week of September when temperatures may reach 34 degrees Celsius.

Daily temperatures are forecast to range between 24 degrees Celsius and 33 degrees Celsius for the remainder of the month.

In comparison, the first two weeks of September saw less wet weather overall with short-duration thundery showers in the afternoon on some days and widespread moderate to heavy thundery showers on some mornings.
