    • More thunderstorms expected in first half of November: Met Service

      SINGAPORE: More thunderstorms can be expected in the first half of November, the Meteorological Service said in an advisory on Wednesday (Nov 1).

      November is normally the second wettest month of the year after December, and "short-duration moderate to heavy thundery showers" are forecast mostly in the afternoon on six to eight days of the month, said the Met Service.

      On some of these days, the showers could extend into the evening, and heavy lightning can also be expected, it added.

      There could also be widespread thunderstorms and gusty winds between the pre-dawn hours and early morning, the forecaster said.

      Rainfall for the first fortnight of the month is expected to be above normal.

      The daily temperature for the first half of the month is forecast to range between 24°C and 33°C. However daily maximum temperatures could reach a high of 34°C on a few days, said the Met Service, especially on fine weather days with few clouds and light winds.

      RELATIVELY WET OCTOBER - EXCEPT FOR A FIVE-DAY HOT SPELL

      Except for its third week, October was a relatively wet month, the Met Service said. About half of Singapore received above normal rainfall for the month.

      October saw 21 rain days, meaning days on which at least 0.2mm of rain was recorded. This equalled the highest number of such days recorded for October in 1985 and 2003.

      The heaviest daily rainfall recorded during the period was 129.8mm around Tuas on Oct 12.

      The third week of the month, however, saw warm and dry days as the south-west monsoon eased. That week alone saw five days during which the daily maximum temperature exceeded 34°C, the Met Service said.

      The daily temperature for the month ranged between 22.6°C and 35.3°C. The mean monthly temperature recorded for the month was 28.1°C, which is 0.5°C warmer than the long-term mean for October.

    • More wet weather in first half of December: Met Service

      SINGAPORE: Wet and rainy weather is expected to continue in the first two weeks of December, the Meteorological Service said in a weather forecast on Thursday (Nov 30).

      Short, moderate to heavy showers with thunder can be expected on five or six days in the afternoon and evening.

      On one or two days, widespread thundery showers with occasional windy conditions in the early morning can also be expected, said the Met Service.

      Around the second week of the fortnight, a monsoon surge could develop and bring a few days of cooler temperatures, windy conditions and heavy rain to Singapore.

      Rainfall for the first fortnight of December is forecast to be well above normal, the Met Service said.

      The daily maximum temperature for most days in the first half of December is likely to range between 31°C and 32°C.

      However, a few rainy days during this period might drop the daily maximum and minimum temperatures to 29°C and 22°C respectively.

      With the onset of the northeast monsoon, two to four episodes of monsoon surges can be expected from December to January, bringing prolonged, widespread rainfall that can last between two and five days, it added.

    • Expect a cool and wet Christmas http://tdy.sg/2Avfa7x 

    • It's cool and wet as S'pore enters new year

       

      The cool thundery weather that descended on the island as the curtains were drawn on 2017 looks set to continue over the next few days.

      Temperatures fell to as low as 23 deg C yesterday, while rain continued to fall throughout the day amid the New Year's Eve celebrations.

      The thundery showers are due to a north-east monsoon surge in the South China Sea.

      Singapore and the surrounding region are experiencing the wet phase of this monsoon, which typically lasts until January, so the rain is forecast to persist for a few days.

      That will also mean temperatures today will range from just 23 deg C to 29 deg C.

      The same weather pattern brought lower temperatures throughout December. The lowest temperature for the first half of the month was 22.3 deg C - recorded on Dec 14.

      The lowest temperature recorded here was 19.4 deg C on two days in January 1934, said the National Environment Agency.

      A version of this article appeared in the print edition of The Straits Times on January 01, 2018, with the headline 'It's cool and wet as S'pore enters new year'

    • Wet weather conditions expected in the first fortnight of 2018. Short-duration thundery showers between the afternoon and evening on some days, and occasionally windy conditions with widespread moderate to heavy rain and cool temperatures on a few days due to a monsoon surge.

    • Thundery showers due to monsoon surge expected over next few days: NEA. http://bit.ly/2Es7xjF 

    • Daily temperature in Singapore to dip to 22 deg C as monsoon surge persists. http://str.sg/oJrL 

    • Temperatures rise to 27.5 deg C in some areas, signalling end of cool spell http://str.sg/o3Ao 

    • More sunny days ahead as unusual period of cool weather ends  

       

      Pack your jackets and sweaters away. The unusually cool weather in the first two weeks of the year is over, and you can expect more sunny days in the second half of January.

      Temperatures could go as high as 32°C, the Meteorological Service Singapore (MSS) said in a weather update on Wednesday (Jan 17).

      While the prevailing North-east Monsoon is expected to continue, the next two weeks will not be as wet as the first fortnight of the year, the MSS added.

      Still, short-duration thundery showers can be expected in the afternoon on five to seven days during the last two weeks of January. On a few of these days, the thundery showers could extend into the evening.

      Rainfall for January is expected to be "well above normal".

      While daily temperatures are likely to be in the range of 24°C to 32°C, it can drop to as low as 23°C on rainy days.

      Reviewing the weather pattern in the first half of January, the MSS said rain fell over the island almost every day, receiving "significantly above normal rainfall".

      The highest rainfall of 339.4 mm (206 per cent above average) was recorded at Paya Lebar. Rainfall was lowest around the Bukit Panjang area where 162.5mm (44 per cent above average) was recorded.

      The highest total daily rainfall recorded in January was 131.8mm at Paya Lebar.

      The first half of January also saw temperatures dipping to as low as 21.2°C, which was recorded on Jan 14 at Admiralty and Jurong West. The highest temperature recorded for this period was 33.2°C.

    • January an 'eventful' month for Singapore weather: Met Service

      INGAPORE: January was "an eventful month for Singapore's weather", said the Meteorological Service Singapore on Thursday (Feb 1).

      The month not only brought flash floods and hailstones but also the longest spell of cool weather Singapore has seen in a decade.

      Here's more about some of the unusual weather phenomena seen in January:

      FLASH FLOODS IN EASTERN SINGAPORE

      In the first week of January, thundery showers from three different weather systems were observed - localised thunderstorms, Sumatra squalls and monsoon surges, said the Met Service.

      On Jan 8, eastern parts of Singapore received the heaviest rainfall amid widespread thundery showers.

      This caused flash floods in several places, with the highest total daily rainfall recorded in the Paya Lebar area at 131.8mm.

      In general, the rainfall was "well above" normal in January and 502.4mm of rain was recorded at Paya Lebar - 119 per cent above the average.

      CHILLY WEEK

      From Jan 10 to Jan 14, Singapore also experienced its longest cool spell in the last ten years, with daily minimum temperatures dipping to as low as 21.2°C.

      This was recorded at Admiralty and Jurong West on Jan 14.

      The chill was due to a monsoon surge during that period, which brought five consecutive days of cool weather to Singapore, said the Met Service.

      It added that this monsoon surge, including another surge from Dec 30, 2017, to Jan 1, brought overcast skies, windy conditions and widespread rain to Singapore and the surrounding region.

      HAILSTONES IN NORTHERN SINGAPORE

      On Jan 30, hailstones were reported in various parts of Singapore, including Seletar, Yishun and Ang Mo Kio amid heavy thunderstorms.

      This was caused by towering thunderstorm clouds coupled with powerful vertical air currents in the north, said the Met Service.

      The storm, which took residents by surprise, also caused a brief flash flood along Seletar North Link and felled several trees in the area.

      WATERSPOUT NEAR EAST COAST PARK

      The next day, on Jan 31, another intense thunderstorm brought strong winds and heavy rainfall to eastern Singapore.

      A waterspout, a rotating column of winds associated with an intense thunderstorm, was seen over the sea off the east coast of Singapore, said the Met Service.

      The heavy winds sent sailboats, some as heavy as 70kg, flying at the National Sailing Centre.

      Nearby, a large tree fell on Marine Parade Road, almost completely blocking it.

    • Dry, warm weather expected for first half of February: Met Service

      SINGAPORE: Dry, warm and occasionally windy weather conditions are expected for the first half of February, said the Meteorological Service Singapore on Thursday (Feb 1).

      Singapore will be experiencing the "dry phase" of the northeast monsoon season, said the Met Service, with rainfall expected to be below normal.

      "Compared with the very wet weather experienced in January, the first half of February is forecast to be relatively dry with some warm days," it added.

      For three to five days, short thundery showers are expected in the afternoons.

      A weak monsoon surge is also expected to bring "windy conditions with passing showers and cooler temperatures" on a few days.

      The cooler temperatures can be expected during windy or rainy days with daily minimum temperatures ranging between 23 degrees Celsius and 24 degrees Celsius, said the Met Service.

      It added that daily temperatures are forecast to range between 24 degrees Celsius and 33 degrees Celsius, with a maximum of 34 degrees Celsius on a few days.

    • Cooler temperatures, windy conditions expected in Singapore over next four days

      SINGAPORE: Temperatures in Singapore for the next four days, from Feb 10 to Feb 13, are expected to be lower than normal, according to the four-day outlook by the Meteorological Service of Singapore.

      While the weather is expected to be fair on Saturday, windy conditions are to be expected on Sunday and Monday. An afternoon shower is forecast for Tuesday.

      Temperatures are expected to range between 23 degrees Celsius and 33 degrees Celsius over the four days.

      The Met Service said in its last fortnightly forecast on Feb 1 that a weak monsoon surge could affect the South China Sea and the surrounding region in the early part of February.

      "The surge is expected to bring windy conditions with passing showers and cooler temperatures to Singapore on a few days", the forecast said, although rainfall for the first two weeks of February is expected to be below normal.

      Cooler temperatures can be expected with daily minimum temperatures of 23 degrees Celsius or 24 degrees Celsius on windy or rainy days.
