Rain with thunder expected in S’pore in first 2 weeks of July 2021

More showers are expected over Singapore in the first two weeks of July 2021, compared to the last fortnight.

The Meteorological Service Singapore (MSS) said on July 1 that short-duration thundery showers are expected mostly between the morning and early afternoon in the first week of the month.

On a few of these days, prevailing winds in the region are forecast to converge over Singapore and the surrounding vicinity.

This may bring widespread thundery showers and gusty winds over Singapore between the predawn hours and morning.

In the latter half of the fortnight, localised short-duration thundery showers can be expected on most days.

Overall, the rainfall for the first half of July 2021 is expected to be near normal over most parts of the island.

The monsoon rain band is forecast to lie over the equatorial Southeast Asia region the next two weeks.

During the fortnight, the daily temperature on most days is forecast to range between 24°C and 33°C.

There can be a few warm days, particularly in the latter half of the fortnight where the maximum temperature could reach around 34°C.

On a few nights, warm and humid conditions with night-time minimum temperatures of 28°C can be expected when prevailing winds from the southeast or south blow warm and humid air from the sea.
