Less wet weather and warmer conditions can be expected for the first half of October. 

According to the Meteorological Service Singapore (MSS), more dry days are expected for the first two weeks of October, with daily temperatures forecast to go as high as 35 degrees Celsius. 

The prevailing southwest monsoon conditions are forecasted to persist up till mid-October, after which low-level winds are expected to weaken and become light and variable in direction, signalling the start of the inter-monsoon period. 

During the first few days of October, Singapore and the surrounding region can expect dry and warm conditions due to dry air moving eastward from the Indian Ocean over the equatorial Southeast Asia region. 

In addition, short-duration thundery showers are expected on a few days over parts of the island between the late morning and afternoon.

Based on the long-term statistics for the month of October between 1991 and 2020, MSS reports that the average daily temperature in October is 27.9 degrees Celsius.
