SINGAPORE - Some warm days are to be expected in the first half of September with maximum temperatures reaching 34 degrees Celsius, said the National Environment Agency (NEA) in a press release on Tuesday (Sept 1).

The country could also experience slight to moderate hazy conditions on a few days if prevailing winds shift to blow from the south or south-west.

Short-duration thundery showers are likely on three to five days, mostly in the late morning and early afternoon.

Rainfall for the first fortnight of September is expected to be below-normal, it said.

Singapore experienced slightly hazy conditions in the second half of August due to smoke haze from fires in Sumatra that were blown in by the prevailing south to south-westerly winds.
