A while back, I penned an article, describing how the first 2 weeks of April will be both hot and wet at the same time.

Yeah, pretty bad news alright.

Thankfully, however, the worst has come to pass. Today’s the 17th of April, and as such we’ve no need to worry about the former half of April anymore.

Like finally, really, considering how pissed I was with the weather and all-

Boss: Hey, there’s a new update on weather.gov.sg.

Whoa, really? What’s the update?

Boss: YOU GO CHECK YOURSELF LA YOU CHEESEPIE, EXPECT YOUR BOSS TO DO THE WORK FOR YOU ISIT.

Forgive me, Boss! I’m just kidding-

Boss: Just kidding, the weatherman says that the latter half of April will be the same as the first. Cheers!

And as my lovely boss sauntered into his office with all the air and grace of a modern-day Prospero, I couldn’t help but feel deflated;

We have to go through all that shit for another two weeks?

Hot & Heavy Wet Conditions to Persist for the Second Half of April 2019

According to our residential weatherman weather.gov.sg, wet and warm conditions are expected to persist from hereon to the end of the month.

In the second half of April 2019, “moderate to heavy short-duration thundery showers are expected between the late morning and afternoon on six to eight days”.

Additionally, on one or two days, the passage of Sumatra squalls (nothing to do with the Final Fantasy VIII character) could bring “widespread thundery showers and gusty winds in the morning”.

Rainfall for April 2019, however, is expected to be near-normal.

Temperatures, on the other hand, are predicted to continue where they left off in the former half of April. According to the weatherman, the daily temperature on most days is predicted to fluctuate between 25°C and 34°C. And on certain afternoons, the daily maximum temperature could reach as high as 35°C.

So well, yes folks; it’s gonna be the same shit all over again alright.

By the way, if you’d have realised, in the last few days, a few aunties went home only to realise that their raw eggs they’ve bought had become hard boiled egg.

Scary.

First half of April

Despite the wet weather on most days in the first fortnight of April 2019, there were several days that were excruciatingly warm, with the daily temperature actually surpassing 35°C. In fact, the highest daily maximum temperature recorded was 36.0°C at Admiralty on 7 April 2019.

Damn, that’s hot.

Luckily, however, it seems to be a rare occasion as the daily temperature appears to range between 24°C and 34°C.

Should you wish to be updated of the prevailing weather conditions, you can visit their MSS website (www.weather.gov.sg), NEA website (www.nea.gov.sg), or download the myENV app, or the MSS’ [email protected] app.

And so… now what?

Well for starters, may I just advise that you bring an umbrella wherever you go? And as for the main course…

Please abstain from unneccessarily thick clothing, especially when you know you’re gonna be in the open. Without air-con.

You’ve been warned.

And for Goody’s sake, if you’ve not serviced your air-conditioner for more than six months, now’s the time.
