If you have been scowling about the hot and humid weather in July so far, here’s a piece of good news: More wet weather is expected in the next two weeks. 

The Meteorological Service Singapore (MSS) on Friday (Jul 15) said that on most days in the second half of July, localised short-duration showers, at times with thunder, are expected over a few parts of the island in the late morning and afternoon. 

On some of these days, the thundery showers could be heavy, due to strong day-time heating of land areas coupled with convergence of winds over Singapore and the surrounding vicinity. 

In addition, island-wide thundery showers with occasional gusty winds due to Sumatra squalls can be expected in the predawn hours and morning on some days.

However, it added that fair and warm conditions can be expected in the first few days of the second half of July, due to the stable atmospheric conditions arising from the presence of dry air over Singapore and the surrounding region. 

On most days, the daily temperature is forecast to range between 24 degrees Celsius and 33 degrees Celsius.  However, temperature may exceed 34 degrees Celsius on the warmer days. 

The wet weather may see daily temperatures lower to between 23 and 32 degrees Celsius on a few days. 

A few warm and humid nights can be expected as well, with minimum temperatures of up to 28 degrees Celsius expected over the eastern and southern coastal areas of the island.
