SINGAPORE — Singaporeans should expect thundery showers on most days for the rest of April, even though the weather is also expected to be warm.

The Meteorological Service Singapore (MSS) said in a media release on Tuesday (16 April) that short, moderate-to-heavy thundery showers are expected between the late morning and afternoon on six to eight days in the second half of April.

In addition, on one or two days, the passage of Sumatran squalls could bring widespread thundery showers and gusty winds in the morning. Rainfall is forecast to be near-normal.

The daily temperature on most days is forecast to range between 25°C and 34°C. On a few afternoons, the daily maximum temperature could reach as high as 35°C.

Weather conditions to persist through May

MSS said that the prevailing inter-monsoon conditions are expected to persist through May, and low-level winds will generally be light and variable in direction. There is also strong solar heating of land areas and, coupled with the convergence of winds over Singapore and the surrounding vicinity, short thundery showers accompanied by high lightning activity will typically occur in the afternoons.
