SINGAPORE — Less rain is expected in the second fortnight of December compared to the first half of the month, the Meteorological Service Singapore (MSS) said on Tuesday (Dec 15).

The daily temperature is expected to range between 24°C and 33°C on most days. However, MSS said that the mercury could rise to around 34°C in the afternoon on days when there is little or no rainfall.

MSS said that the north-easterly winds over the South China Sea and Singapore are forecast to weaken in the second half of the month.

During this period, short-duration thundery showers are expected over parts of Singapore in the afternoon on most days. This is due to the strong day-time heating of land areas coupled with the localised convergence of winds in the surrounding vicinity.

The weather agency added that the showers could extend into the evening on a few of those days.

“Also in the fortnight, a brief strengthening of northerly winds can be expected. This could bring windy conditions with occasional showers on one or two days.” MSS said.

Overall, the rainfall for December 2020 is expected to be below average over most parts of the island.
