Did you know that the lowest temperature ever recorded in Singapore was 19 degrees Celsius in Paya Lebar in 1989? On 15 September, the temperature in Paya Lebar was a chilly 21.8 degrees Celsius, which is quite a bit lower than what Singaporeans are used to. If you’ve not been a fan of the weather lately, I’ve got good news for you.
While the monsoon rain will still be with us, there will be less rain in general, according to a report released by the Meteorological Service of Singapore. It’s interesting to note that despite the rain backing off, September remains on its way to exceed the monthly rainfall ratio in general.
Although the late morning to afternoon is a popular time for leaving laundry outside to dry, take note that it is also the time when moderate to heavy thundery showers are most likely to strike. People that like to put their laundry outside and then go marketing, don’t say we never warn you ah.
The average temperature range expected for the rest of September is between 25 to 34 degrees Celsius. Some nights will also be warmer at around 28 degrees Celsius.
What are your thoughts on the recent weather? Are you looking forward to curl up at home with a good book, maybe with a hot cup of matcha on the rainy days? Or are you a beach body, yearning for a day that’s all sun all the time?
