SINGAPORE — Expect a dry and warm start to February, the Meteorological Service Singapore (MSS) said in a weather update on Monday (Feb 1).

However, some short-duration thundery showers in the afternoon are forecast for some of the days in the first half of the month.

The daily temperature is forecast to range between 24°C and 33°C on most days, though it could reach a high of 34°C on days with little or no rain, MSS said.

The weather agency said that the prevailing northeast monsoon conditions are expected to persist in the first half of the month, with low-level winds blowing from the northwest or northeast.

During the first week of the month, a strengthening of the northeast winds over the South China Sea is expected to bring windy conditions with passing showers over the island on a few days.

However, fair and warm weather can be expected for most part of that week due to the stable atmospheric conditions arising from the presence of a dry air mass over the equatorial Southeast Asia region.

Short-duration thundery showers can be expected in the afternoon in the second week of February due to strong solar heating of land areas, the weather agency added.

“On a few days, the showers may extend into the evening. Overall, the rainfall for the first half of February 2021 is expected to be below normal over most parts of the island,” it said.

For the daily weather forecast, the public may visit the websites of MSS or the National Environment Agency. They may also download the myENV mobile application or the Weather@SG app by MSS.
