Weather update 9 February 2017

A temporary reprieve from the wet weather that Singapore has been experiencing this past week can be expected for the next few days. This is due to an incursion of drier air over the region, bringing generally fair and occasionally windy conditions to Singapore.

Rainy conditions can be expected again when a monsoon surge* is forecast to affect the South China Sea from around this Sunday (12 February). The surge will bring windy conditions with widespread rain, heavy at times, on some days in the coming week. The daily temperature during this period is expected to range between 22°C and 29°C.

*A monsoon surge refers to a strengthening of winds over the South China Sea, causing extensive rainclouds to form over our surrounding region.
