The weather for the rest of May is forecasted to be warmer and drier than the first fortnight of the month, said the Meteorological Service Singapore (MSS) in a release.

The daily temperature is expected to range between 34 and 35 degrees Celsius on most days, possibly hitting as high as 36 degrees Celsius on some days.

At night, the weather is expected to be warm and humid as well, with temperatures expected to reach around 28 degrees Celsius.

As the Southwest Monsoon is expected to set in this coming fortnight, the weather during this period is drier than other times of the year.

However, there may be short-duration showers on some days of the next two weeks, at times with thunder. These showers are expected to occur in late mornings and early afternoons.

Islandwide thunderstorms with gusty winds can also be expected on one or two mornings, due to the Sumatra squalls.

The overall rainfall for the rest of May is expected to be below or near average over most parts of Singapore.
