SINGAPORE — It looks set to be a wet Christmas this year, with Singapore and the surrounding region now in the wet phase of the Northeast Monsoon season that is set to extend into January.
In an update by the Meteorological Service Singapore (MSS) on Monday (Dec 16), it said that the strong daytime heating of land areas coupled with localised convergence of winds are expected to influence Singapore’s weather on eight to 10 days in the final fortnight of the year.
The daily temperatures are forecast to range between 24°C and 33°C on most days, and could dip to a low of around 23°C on a few days.
The weather conditions in the next fortnight are conducive for localised thunderstorm cloud development, which could bring moderate to heavy thundery showers in the afternoons.
On some of those days, the showers could extend into the evening.
“Showers are (also) likely around the Christmas period,” the MSS said.
The agency added that overall, the rainfall for December 2019 is expected to be well above average.
The rainy weather is expected to prevail into January 2020 before transitioning to the dry phase of the season from February to mid-March.
