Feeling sleepy?

It’s not you, it’s just the weather.

If you didn’t already know, we’re currently in the Southwest Monsoon season, which usually brings heavy rains to the region from June to September.

This time however, the wet weather is expected to continue into October.

Wet weather expected to continue

The Meteorological Service Singapore (MSS) has reported that the current wet weather is expected to continue into the first half of October 2022.

That means that from now until mid-October, you can expect to see the “thundery showers” icon whenever you open your myENV app.

Here’s a word of advice: postpone all your Sentosa beach days or Marina Barrage picnics. There’s better (and less basic) things to do in Singapore anyway.

The prevailing Southwest Monsoon conditions are forecast to persist over Singapore and the surrounding region in the next fortnight.

As the name “Southwest Monsoon” suggests, the low-level winds will be blowing from the south or west on most days.

For the following two weeks, be prepared to sleep through your alarms and carry your umbrellas to lunch as thundery showers are expected between the morning and early afternoon on most days.

This weekend, the convergence of low-level winds in the region could bring moderate to heavy thundery showers over Singapore in the afternoon.

This is your chance to take a sweet afternoon nap!

In the second week of October, widespread thundery showers with occasional gusty winds are expected during the pre-dawn hours and in the morning on some days.

The total rainfall for the first fortnight of October 2022 is forecast to be more than average across most of the island.

Hopefully there won’t be too many flash floods again.

Parents will be happy to hear this – you can switch off your air conditioners now because for the next two weeks, the daily temperature on most days is forecast to range between 24 degrees Celsius and 33 degrees Celsius.

Saving on your electrical bills while still enjoying a good night’s sleep – what’s not to love about this weather?

On a few days, the wet weather may bring even lower daily temperatures of between 23 and 32 degrees Celsius.

Do you remember? The 21st night of September?

It was probably just a really cold night.

In September 2022, Southwest Monsoon conditions prevailed over Singapore and the surrounding region as well, with winds blowing mostly from the southeast or southwest.

It rained more in the second half of September 2022 compared to the first half of the month.

On several days of last month, moderate to heavy thundery showers hit the island in the morning and even extended into the early afternoon on a few days.

The weather also brought the daily maximum temperature down below 33 degrees Celsius on most days.

Night time temperatures were even cooler, with September 2022 boasting 21 days with daily minimum temperatures of 24 degrees Celsius or less.

Temperatures in the West dropped to 21.6 degrees Celsius on 25 September 2022 during the morning showers. That was the lowest daily minimum temperature for September 2022.

Perhaps the West side really is the best side.

Overall, rainfall was above average for most parts of the island in September 2022.
