SINGAPORE- The National Environment Agency (NEA) on Friday (July 31) warned of short-duration thundery showers in the late mornings and early afternoons during the Jubilee weekend from Aug 7 to 10.

"In the first fortnight of August 2015, short-duration thundery showers due to strong solar heating of land areas are likely on four to six days, mostly in the late morning and early afternoon," NEA said in a press statement.

NEA added that thundery showers with gusty winds due to Sumatra squalls can be expected on two or three days in the mornings.

NEA also said that slightly hazy conditions can be expected on a few days, especially in the early morning, due to the accumulation of particulate matter under light wind conditions.

Rainfall for the first fortnight of August 2015 is likely to be near-normal.
