If you’ve been enjoying the cold weather during the Chinese New Year so far, here’s some bad news: Winter Singapore is ending, and Summer Singapore, the default mode of Singapore weather, is back.

Here’s what to expect in the first two weeks of February.

Winter S’pore Ending as First 2 Weeks of Feb 2023 Could Reach 34°C

According to the weatherman, more sunshine is predicted for the first fortnight of February 2023 as the winter-like weather conditions seen in the second half of January 2023 are set to gradually subside.

Short-lived thundery showers can still be anticipated over portions of Singapore in the afternoon on most days, though, as the monsoon rain band is predicted to continue near the equatorial region.

On some days, the showers would last well into the evening, so prepare your umbrella lest it rains when you return home after work.

Nevertheless, over most of Singapore, the overall amount of precipitation during the first two weeks of February 2023 is anticipated to be above average.

The temperature is predicted to hover between 24°C and 33°C daily for the next two weeks.

But in a few days, with less cloud, it can reach up to 34°C.

Now, let’s review January 2023, when it rained non-stop for a few days.

Wet, But Not That Wet

Even though it felt like Heaven cried for the entirety of January 2023, data shows otherwise.

In January 2023, Singapore experienced rainfall that was about average (shocking, I know). Changi had the highest anomaly, which was 36% over average. The anomaly was 20% below average at Seletar, where it was lowest.

But as expected, compared to the first half of the month, January 2023’s second half had significantly more rainfall.

Strong north-easterly winds, often known as a monsoon surge, were experienced over the South China Sea during the Chinese New Year period due to the strengthening of high-pressure systems over northern Asia.

On 22 to 25 and 28 to 29 January 2023, two monsoon surges brought cold and rainy weather to Singapore and the surrounding area. The monsoon surges drenched Singapore and the surrounding area with heavy, persistent rain.

The heaviest daily total rainfall of 120.0mm was recorded at Changi East on 25 January 2023, when it rained the most. This was January 2023’s highest daily total for precipitation.

Because of the cool weather, the highest daily maximum temperature fell below 27°C on four occasions.

The highest daily maximum temperature barely reached 25.7°C  at East Coast Parkway on 25 January 2023, which means the entire island was on air-con.

Nine days in January 2023 saw a daily minimum temperature below 23°C—a temperature we probably won’t experience in the next two weeks.
