Warmer temperatures, less rainfall to be expected for second half of July
Several nights may also be warm, with night-time temperatures of around 28 degrees Celsius, particularly over the south-eastern parts of the island.
Warmer temperatures and less rainfall are expected in the second half of July as compared to the first half of the month, according to the Meteorological Service Singapore (MSS).
The warm conditions are expected on most days, with daily maximum temperatures ranging between 32 and 34 degrees Celsius. The MSS also reports that the daily maximum temperature could reach a high of around 35 degrees Celsius on one or two days.
Several nights may also be warm, particularly over the south-eastern parts of the island, with night-time temperatures of around 28 degrees Celsius to be expected.
This is likely to be caused by prevailing winds that will blow from the southeast or south, bringing warm and humid air from the sea.
The decrease in rainfall to Singapore and the surrounding region will be due to the rain band shifting northwards as a result of low-pressure systems in the western Pacific Ocean and South China Sea.
However, short-duration thundery showers are expected between the late morning and afternoon over parts of the island on some days.
For the month of July, the total rainfall is expected to be near average over most parts of the island.
