SINGAPORE — While the current wet and humid conditions in Singapore will extend into the early part of the coming fortnight, a transition to dry and warm conditions is expected towards the end of June 2019.

In a statement on Friday (14 June), the Meteorological Service Singapore (MSS) noted that the prevailing Southwest Monsoon conditions are forecast to persist over Singapore and the surrounding region for the rest of June, and extend to October.

In the second fortnight of June, the monsoon rain band is forecast to remain over the equatorial region before shifting northwards in the last week of the month.

“In the second half of June, Singapore can expect thundery showers mostly in the late morning and early afternoon on four to six days. On some of these days, the showers could extend into the late afternoon and evening,” said an MSS spokesman.

“Overall, the rainfall for June is likely to be slightly above-normal for most parts of Singapore.”

In the coming fortnight, the daily temperature on most days is forecast to range between 25°C and 33°C. The daily maximum temperature could reach up to 35°C in the last week of the month.

Warm and humid nights can be expected, with night-time temperatures of up to 28°C on some days, particularly when prevailing winds blowing from the southeast bring in warm and humid air from the sea.

Well above-average rainfall was received across the island in the first fortnight of June.
