Warm nights, wet days for the rest of May

SINGAPORE — Wet days and warm nights are expected over the next fortnight, the Meteorological Service Singapore (MSS) said in a media advisory on Tuesday (May 16).

Short-duration thundery showers - which can be heavy on some days - are expected on six to eight days in the late morning and afternoon and could extend into the evening on one or two of those days.

On two or three days, there may be widespread thundery showers accompanied by gusty winds between the pre-dawn and early morning hours, the met service forecasted.

Although most parts of Singapore received below normal rainfall in the first half of May, rainfall for the rest of the month is expected to be slightly above normal.

Wind conditions are also expected to pick up towards the end of May and persist into early June, the MSS added.

The temperature for the rest of the month is expected to range between 24°C and 33°C, reaching a high of 34°C on a few days. The MSS also said that on some non-rainy nights, temperatures may be relatively warm due to weak south-east winds bringing warm, humid air from the sea toward the land.
