SINGAPORE — The next two weeks should see mostly dry and warm conditions, said the weatherman on Tuesday (March 1).

According to the Meteorological Service Singapore (MSS), daily temperatures during this period is expected to range between 24°C and 33°C on most days. There will be days that the daily maximum temperature could reach up to 34°C, the Met Service added.

Nonetheless, rainfall for the first half of March is expected to be near-normal. Localised short-duration thundery showers are expected in the afternoons of some days, with heavy showers possible on days when there is convergence of winds coupled with strong solar heating of land areas.

Singapore is in the midst of the North-east Monsoon conditions, with low level winds blowing predominantly from the north or north-east. Last month was the fourth warmest February since 1929, with the highest daily maximum temperature recorded ranging between 33.8°C and 34.2°C, while the mean monthly temperature was 27.8°C. This is despite the fact that the second week of February saw occasionally windy and cool weather conditions, with the lowest daily minimum temperature recorded between 21.5°C and 22.5°C due to a monsoon surge that affected the region.

The warm conditions though did not mean less rainfall. Rainfall across Singapore was above average last month, said the Met Service. The highest rainfall of 186mm (68 per cent above average) was recorded over the eastern part of Singapore around Changi. Rainfall was lowest over the north-eastern part of the island around Seletar, where 178mm (11 per cent above average) was recorded.
