SINGAPORE - More showers and some gusty winds can be expected in the second half of June, the National Environment Agency (NEA) said in a weather advisory on Thursday (June 16).

Short showers due to strong convective heating during the day are expected in the late morning and afternoon on five to seven days, NEA said.

In addition, widespread thundery showers with occasional gusty winds are likely in the pre-dawn hours and morning on one to two days, due to Sumatra squalls.

 

The rainfall for June is likely to be near average, said NEA.

South-west monsoon conditions set in during the first half of June and are expected to persist for the month.

Light winds are forecast to blow mainly from the south-east or south-west.

Maximum temperatures are expected to range between 32 deg C and 33 deg C, and reach 34 deg C on a few days.

In the past two weeks, the highest daily maximum temperature recorded was 34.6 deg C around the Seletar area.

Most parts of Singapore received above average rainfall in the first half of June, but rainfall for the month is likely to be near average, NEA said.
