Expect temperatures to reach as low as 22°C and wet weather during the first half of December, said the Meteorological Service Singapore (MSS) on Friday (30 November).

The cooler weather is expected as Singapore and the surrounding region enter the Northeast monsoon season, MSS added.

The daily temperature on most days is expected to range between 24°C and 32°C, with the possibility of a few days during the period where the daily minimum temperature recorded could reach a low of between 22°C and 23°C.

As the Northeast monsoon season enters its wet phase, thundery showers – occurring mostly in the afternoon – can be expected on seven to nine days in the first fortnight of December, with above normal rainfall in the same period.

The Northeast monsoon season is expected to prevail till March next year. As such, Singapore and the surrounding region will likely see more occurrences of short-duration moderate to heavy thundery showers in the afternoon over the next two months.

“On some days, a surge of strong northeasterly winds blowing southward over the South China Sea could bring occasional windy conditions with frequent spells of widespread rain showers over Singapore and the surrounding vicinity,” said the MSS.
