Wet weather expected to continue for rest of November
The winds are forecasted to gradually strengthen towards the end of the month.
The wet weather from the first two weeks of November is expected to continue for the rest of the month, said the Meteorological Service Singapore (MSS) on Tuesday (Nov 16).
The daily temperatures are predicted to range between 24 degrees Celsius and 33 degrees Celsius during this period.
Short-duration moderate to heavy thundery showers will most likely occur in the afternoons on most days over parts of Singapore. The rainfall could extend into the evening as well on some days.
On one or two days, the thundery showers may get intense due the expected winds around the surrounding region of Singapore.
The convergence of winds from Southwest or West over the Strait of Malacca will trigger the development of Sumatra squalls which may bring widespread rainfall and heavy winds over the island between pre-dawn hours and morning.
Though the rest of November is not expected to be as wet as the first two weeks of the month, the overall rainfall for the month is expected to be above average over most parts of the country.
