Temperatures could soar up to 35 degrees Celsius on some days in first half of June
Overall rainfall in the next two weeks is forecasted to be near-average over most parts of Singapore.
Temperatures of up to 35 degrees Celsius may be expected on some days in the next two weeks, as the warm and humid weather continues in the first half of June.
Despite the prevailing warm weather conditions, more showers are also forecasted in the upcoming fortnight, with short-duration and widespread thundery showers expected on some days, said the Meteorological Service Singapore (MSS) on Wednesday (Jun 1).
Daily temperature for the next two weeks is expected to range between 25 and 34 degrees Celsius on most days, possibly reaching 35 degrees Celsius on some days.
Minimum temperatures of up to 28 degrees Celsius are expected at night, particularly over the southern and eastern coastal areas of Singapore. This is due to the prevailing winds from the southeast or south which blow warm and humid air from the sea.
A mass of dry air from the Indian Ocean is also forecasted to move over the equatorial Southeast Asia region on some days of the fortnight. The phenomenon will therefore result in fair and warm weather over Singapore and the surrounding areas.
However, there may be localised, short-duration thundery showers on some days of the next two weeks. These showers are expected to occur in late mornings and afternoons.
Widespread thundery showers with gusty winds may also occur on a few mornings, due to Sumatra squalls.
The overall rainfall for the first half of June 2022 is expected to be near-average over most parts of Singapore.
