SINGAPORE - More thundery showers are expected for the rest of the month, said the Meteorological Service Singapore in a statement on Friday (Dec 14).

Towards the last week of December, a surge of monsoon winds over the South China Sea will bring more intense thunderstorms over Singapore on one or two days, along with occasional windy conditions.

The amount of rainfall for December is expected to be close to normal levels for the month.
