SINGAPORE — Wet weather is expected for the rest of the year due to the North-east Monsoon, the Meteorological Service Singapore (MSS) said today (Dec 16).

Over the next two weeks, monsoon conditions are forecast to prevail, with low level winds blowing predominantly from the north-east or north-west.

During this period, thundery showers are expected mostly in the afternoon and early evening for five to seven days. Widespread moderate to heavy rain are also likely on two to three days in the last week of this month.

Occasionally windy conditions and cooler temperatures are also forecast over the next two weeks. The temperature range for the fortnight is forecast to be between 22°C and 33°C.
