The wet weather experienced in the first fortnight of February is expected to continue into the second half of the month, said the Meteorological Service Singapore on Wednesday (Jan 16). 

This is because of the monsoon rain band lying over the equatorial Southeast Asia region, with winds blowing from the Northeast or Northwest. 

On most days, short-duration thundery showers can be expected in the afternoon which may even extend into the evening. 

There will also be one or two days where the weather will be fair and warm, caused by the presence of a mass of dry air over the surrounding South China Sea. 

Towards the end of February, the winds from the Northeast are expected to be stronger, which may trigger widespread and heavy thundery showers over Singapore. The rainfall for this month is expected to be above-average over most parts of the country. 

The daily temperature on most days is forecast to range between 24 degrees Celsius and 33 degrees Celsius. When there is less cloud cover, the maximum temperature can increase to around 34 degrees Celsius.
