S’pore Will Still Feel Like Sauna in 2nd Half of March with Temperature Up to 35°C


Rumours have it that on 9 March 2019, BuffLord95 had just bought some raw eggs and had wanted to down them raw like a man.

Once he reached home, he cracked an egg, ready to devour it like a man when it he saw this:

That might be a rumour, but according to the weathermen, 9 March 2019 was indeed a hot day, especially so in Choa Chu Kang, where BuffLord95 lived. That Saturday, Choa Chu Kang recorded its highest maximum temperature at 35.7°C.

And just so you know, in January, that area was the hottest as well, so I guess we can come to a conclusion: if you live in Choa Chu Kang, expect hard-boiled eggs.

Now, how about the next two weeks?

We won’t know if Choa Chu Kang is going to boil some eggs again, but we do know that the heatwave isn’t going to stop soon, because the weathermen have just brought us another piece of bad news.

Heatwave to Continue in Second Half of March

By now, your umbrella should have somehow become rather mouldy and your air-conditioner is leaking water after prolonged use: the first half of March was not just hot.

It was bloody hot.

As usual, the rainfall was below average during that period.

While it could be due to Captain Marvel hovering atop us with her glowing resting bitch face, the main cause is due to the prevailing Northeast Monsoon, as winds blow hot air into our little island.

The good news is that as we approach the end of March, the wind will weaken and therefore end the heatwave.


But between now until April, we’re still going to get burnt from outdoor activities as the temperature range would be between 24°C and 34°C, and could go up to 35°C when there’s no rain.

However, the last week of March would be relatively better: due to some winds (yeah, not all winds bring the heat) that’ll shift the monsoon rain, rain is expected in the afternoon on many days, and sometimes in the morning and afternoon as well.

Remember that the heatwave of 35°C would only occur when there’s no rain? That means the chances of eggs boiling outdoors would only occur in next week, from 18 March 2019 to 24 March 2019.

If there’s one takeaway, it’s this: tahan one more week of sauna, and we’ll finally have a weather that’s more…reasonable.
