We’re back with the weather updates.

We said the first 2 weeks of May was going to alternate between downpours and high temperatures.

And look, nothing has changed okay, so if you clicked on this article just to confirm that we’re going to have another half a month of pneumonia and heat strokes, you can get out now.

Or you can stick around and hear about how many days things happen.

The Break Down

We have 14 more days till the end of the month, where we will bring you another report about how things didn’t change or have gotten worse.

After all, we’re hurtling into the heart of summer right now, what do you expect?

Of these 14 days, 6 to 8 days will have thundery showers “between late morning and early afternoon”.

Which is good news because it’ll rain when we’re in the office, and not when we’re on the way to work.

Another 2 to 3 days happening within the next week will have “gusty winds” added into the thundery showers mix, occurring “between predawn and morning”.

That’s no goody, because we might be on the way to work. Hopefully that’ll happen during the weekends.

So all in all, that’s a good 8 to 11 days predicted to rain out of our fortnight, but remember,  it’s not raining for the entire day so get ready to embrace the heat right after.

Temperatures on days that rain can still reach 34°C, with an expected minimum of 26°C.

That’s hot already, but on drier days it gets worse with maximum temperatures potentially climbing to 35°C.

That’s enough to melt kittens, but anyways.

Geography Facts about the Current Weather Conditions

  • These showers are a result of inter-monsoon conditions, which started late March this year

Things to Note

A couple of mornings may be rainy, which makes taxi taking hard so don’t wake up late for school and work. Also, close the windows before you sleep.
