Wet weather expected to continue in second half of June
Rainfall is forecast to be above average in most parts of Singapore.
Wet weather will continue in the second half of June with thundery showers expected on most days, the Meteorological Service Singapore (MSS) announced in a media release on Thursday (Jun 16).
Widespread thundery showers with strong winds can be expected between the predawn hours and morning on some days due to Sumatra squalls.
On several days, there may also be short thundery showers over parts of the island in the late morning and afternoon.
The thundery showers could be heavy due to the strong daytime heating of land areas coupled with winds converging over Singapore and the surrounding area, said MSS.
Rainfall is forecast to be above average in most parts of the island for the rest of June. Low-level winds are also forecast to continue blowing from the southeast or southwest on most days.
The wet weather may “slightly ease” the recent warm and humid conditions, added MSS.
Daily temperatures in June are forecast to range between 24 to 33 degrees Celsius on most days, but there could still be a few warm days with daily highs exceeding 34 degrees Celsius.
Night temperatures as low as 28 degrees Celsius can be expected, particularly in the eastern and southern coastal areas of Singapore. A few nights may still be warm and humid due to southeast winds blowing warm and moist air from the sea towards land.
