SINGAPORE: More warm days and drier weather are expected in the first half of July, with daily maximum temperature likely to range between 33 and 34 degrees Celsius on most days.
The daily maximum temperature is expected to reach highs of about 35 degrees Celsius on a few days, said the Meteorological Service Singapore on Friday (Jul 1).
There could also be some warm nights with temperatures of about 28 degrees Celsius.
The prevailing Southwest Monsoon conditions are expected to persist over Singapore and the surrounding region in the coming fortnight, with the prevailing winds continuing to blow from the south-east or south-west.
In the first week of July, Singapore and the surrounding region may experience dry and warm conditions, due to a mass of dry air moving eastward from the Indian Ocean over the equatorial Southeast Asian region.
In the second week, short-duration thundery showers are expected between the late morning and afternoon over parts of the island on several days.
Thundery showers could be widespread on one or two days, and may extend into the early evening.
Additionally, island-wide thundery showers with occasional gusty winds can be expected in the predawn and morning on one or two days.
“The rainfall for the first fortnight of July 2022 is forecast to be below average over most parts of the island,” said the Met Service.
WARM CONDITIONS EXPECTED ON MOST DAYS
Warm conditions are expected on most days in the first half of July, with daily temperatures ranging between 25 and 34 degrees Celsius.
Some nights are expected to be warm, particularly when the prevailing winds blow from the south-east or south, bringing warm and humid air from the sea over the land. Temperatures of around 28 degrees Celsius can be expected on these nights.
