SINGAPORE - Wet weather conditions are expected in the first two weeks of July, with thundery showers in the late morning and early afternoon on several days, the Meteorological Service Singapore (MSS) said on Friday (June 30).

The weather in Singapore will continue to be influenced by the prevailing south-west monsoon, and widespread thundery showers with occasional gusty winds are expected on two or three mornings in the first fortnight of July.

The daily temperature is expected to range between 25 deg C and 33 deg C.

Some warm days can be expected in the second week of July, with temperatures reaching up to 34 deg C.

Conversely, the showers mean temperatures could drop to 22 deg C on rainy days.

Last month, about half of Singapore received rainfall that was less than normal.

Rainfall was lowest around the Tanjong Katong area, while it was highest around Jurong.
