SINGAPORE — Singapore could see sharp swings in day-to-day temperatures over the final two weeks of February.

The daily minimum temperature could dip to around 22°C on rainy days, while some warm days can be expected in the later part of the fortnight, where the daily maximum temperature could reach a high of 34°C, said Meteorological Service Singapore on Thursday (Feb 16).

Short-duration thundery showers can be expected in the afternoon on six to eight days over the next fortnight, and could extend into the evening on a few days.

In the first half of February, the brief dry spell in Singapore was broken in the second week by a monsoon surge between Feb 12-15 when windy and cool conditions were felt. The highest maximum wind gust was recorded on Feb 12 at the Marina Barrage — 67.4kmh.

The highest total daily rainfall recorded so far this month was on Feb 8 at the Orchard Road area — 108.2mm. On that day, flash floods were sighted on Orchard Boulevard towards Paterson Road, and at the junction of Hill Street/Stamford Road at around 6pm. The PUB had said then on Twitter that both floods subsided in about 15 minutes, and traffic remained passable.
