Temperatures as high as 35 degrees Celsius expected in first half of July
It’s going to be warmer and drier in July, as compared to June.
Warmer and drier weather is expected in the first half of July, said the Meteorological Service Singapore (MSS) on Friday (Jul 1).
Daily temperatures over the next two weeks are forecast to range between 25 and 34 degrees Celsius on most days. On some days, it may rise up to 35 degrees Celsius.
Warm nights are also expected, with temperatures expected to reach around 28 degrees Celsius.
In the first week of July, Singapore is expected to experience warmer temperatures due to a mass of dry air moving eastward from the Indian Ocean over the equatorial Southeast Asian region.
In the following week, short-duration thundery showers are expected between the late morning and afternoon for several days. The showers are also forecasted to be widespread on one or two days, and may also extend into the early evening.
Island-wide thundery showers with occasional gusty winds are also expected on one or two mornings, due to Sumatra squalls.
The overall rainfall for the first half of July is expected to be below average over most parts of Singapore.
