Fewer days with rainfall are expected for the later half of July 2021, compared to the preceding half of the month, said the Meteorological Service Singapore (MSS) on July 16.
Fewer rainy days
This is because the monsoon rain band is forecast to lie over the the northern Southeast Asia region. Since Singapore is located in the equatorial Southeast Asia region, we can expect less rainfall here.
Localised short-duration showers, at times with thunder are expected over a few parts of the island in the late morning and early afternoon.
In addition, due to Sumatra squalls, island-wide thundery showers with occasional gusty winds can be expected in the morning on one or two days.
Overall, the rainfall over Singapore for July 2021 is forecast to be above normal.
Fair and warm weather
In the second fortnight of July 2021, generally fair and warm weather can be expected on some days, a result of stable atmospheric conditions arising from the presence of dry air over Singapore and the surrounding region.
On most days, the daily temperature is forecast to range between 25°C and 34°C.
However, the daily maximum temperature could reach around 35°C for some days, when there are few clouds in the sky.
Warm and humid nights are to be expected on some days, particularly in the eastern and southern coastal areas, with minimum night-time temperatures of up to 28°C.
This is a result of prevailing winds blowing from the southeast, which brings warm, and humid air from the surrounding seas.
