SINGAPORE - Singapore is set to experience drier, hotter weather in the first half of June, as part of the Southwest Monsoon, said the Meteorological Service Singapore (MSS) on Thursday (June 1).

Dry weather conditions are expected on most days, with localised short-duration thundery showers expected in the late morning and early afternoon on three or five days.

The Southwest Monsoon season, which extends from June to September, is generally drier compared to other times of the year, it said. The MSS added that the monsoon season began to set in over Singapore in the second half of May.

In the latter half of the fortnight, thundery showers with gusty winds due to Sumatra squalls can be expected in the wee hours of one or two days.
