It looks to be wet and cold for the rest of August. 

According to the Meteorological Service Singapore, more wet days are expected for the rest of the month, with daily temperatures forecast to go as low as 24 degree Celsius. 

Short-duration thundery showers can be expected in the afternoons and, on a few days, into the evenings. 

Widespread heavy thundery showers are also expected on some days due to the large-scale convergence of winds over Singapore. In addition, the passage of Sumatra squalls could bring widespread thundery showers and gusty winds over the island on a few mornings. 

The daily temperature for the rest of August is forecasted to range between 24 degree Celsius and 33 degree Celsius. Although showers are expected on most days, the daily maximum temperature could still reach a scorching 34 degree Celsius on certain days. 

Relatively warm, humid nights with a minimum night-time temperature of up to 28 degrees Celsius, particularly over the eastern and southern coastal areas of the island when prevailing southeast winds bring sultry air from the surrounding seas can be expected on a few days. 

In the first half of August 2021, the highest daily recorded rainfall, at 97.8mm, was recorded at Choa Chu Kang at 97.8mm. The lowest daily minimum temperature recorded during the period was 21.9 degrees Celsius at Pulau Ubin on Aug 3. 

Slightly more than half of the island recorded above average rainfall in the first half of August 2021, with most of the rain falling in the western half of Singapore. 

If you’re planning for something outdoors in the next two weeks, you may want to have some backup plans instead. Here are some books you can read whilst at the comforts of your home, or card games you can invite some friends over to play these with.
