Singapore can expect more wet days in the first two weeks of November 2021.

The monsoon rain band is forecast to remain over the equatorial Southeast Asia region.

During the period, afternoon thundery showers are forecast on most days, with the showers extending into the evening on a few of these days.

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

There will also be widespread thundery showers and gusty winds on a few mornings due to the passage of Sumatra squalls.

Cooling weather

The total rainfall for the first half of November 2021 is forecast to be above average over most parts of the island.

The daily temperature on most days in the first two weeks of November 2021 is forecast to range between 24°C and 33°C.

The daily maximum temperature could still reach a high of around 34°C on a few days.

The wetter weather in the coming fortnight may bring relatively lower temperatures to the island on a few days, with daily maximum temperatures below 32°C and daily minimum temperatures below 23°C.
