Hot Weather Will Persist in First Half of June With Temperature Up to 35°C


Have you been melting in the hot weather, and praying profusely for some rain?

While you can expect more rainy afternoons ahead, the warm and humid weather isn’t going away anytime soon. Here’s what to expect for the first half of June.

Short-Duration Thundery Showers

You can expect some short thundery showers in the late mornings and afternoons, due to strong daytime heating of land areas.

Additionally, widespread thundery showers with gusty winds are expected due to Sumatra squalls. These will likely happen in the early mornings.

However, dry air from the Indian Ocean is also forecast to be coming over to Southeast Asia. This means that despite the rain, you should still expect warm and fair weather.

Warm and Humid Conditions to Continue

If you were hoping that the rain will chase the heat away, I have some bad news for you.

Yep, the warm and humid weather is expected to continue for the first half of June, with temperatures ranging from 25°C to 34°C on most days. The daily maximum temperature could even reach 35°C on days with no rain.

The nights are going to be warm as well, as winds from the south and southeast blow warm and humid air from the sea to us. The minimum temperature is expected to hit 28°C, especially for the southern and eastern coastal parts of Singapore.
