The southwest monsoon season is expected to set in during the coming fortnight, with the winds gradually strengthening and blowing mainly from the southeast or southwest.

The southwest monsoon season typically extends into September and is a drier period than other times of the year.

Below-average rainfall

Below-average rainfall is also expected with the overall rainfall for the month forecast to be below- to near-average over most parts of Singapore.

On some days in the fortnight, 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, island-wide thundery showers with occasional gusty winds due to Sumatra squalls can be expected in the morning for one or two days.
