The rest of August will continue to be rainy, the Meteorological Service Singapore (MSS) said in an update on Aug. 16.

MSS said that more wet days can be expected for the next two weeks as the monsoon rain band is expected to remain over the equatorial Southeast Asia region.

More thundery showers to come

During the period, short-duration thundery showers are forecast over parts of the island in the afternoon on most days, and the showers could extend into the evening on a few of these days.

On a few days, widespread moderate to heavy thundery showers are expected due to the presence of large-scale convergence of winds over Singapore and the surrounding region.

In addition, the passage of Sumatra squalls could bring widespread thundery showers and gusty winds over the island on a few mornings.

Overall, the total rainfall for this month is forecast to be above average for most parts of Singapore.

Warm and humid nights on a few days

The daily temperature will range between 24°C and 33°C on most days.

While the coming fortnight is expected to be rainy, the daily maximum temperature could still reach a high of around 34°C on a few days, MSS said.

The night-time temperatures can go up to 28°C on a few days, especially over the eastern and southern coastal areas.

This is due to prevailing southeast winds which bring warm and humid air from the surrounding seas.

Therefore, these nights can be relatively warm and humid.
