S’pore to be warm & dry in first 2 weeks of March 2020, max temperature could hit 35°C – Mothership.SG – News from Singapore, Asia and aroun…



Singapore is going to be warm and dry on most days in the first two weeks of March 2020.

The Meteorological Service Singapore has issued its two-week weather outlook on Friday, Feb. 28.

In the early part of the fortnight, dry and warm conditions over Singapore and the surrounding region on most days will be the result of a dry air mass forecast over the equatorial Southeast Asia region.

From the middle of the fortnight, short-duration thundery showers can be expected mostly in the afternoon over parts of the island on some days.

Showers are predicted to be heavy on a few days when there is strong wind convergence over Singapore and the surrounding vicinity.

Overall, the rainfall for the first fortnight of March 2020 is forecast to be below normal over most parts of Singapore.

With the expected warm weather, the daily temperature on most days during the fortnight is forecast to be between 24°C and 34°C.

On a few days with light winds and few clouds, the daily maximum temperature could climb to a high of around 35°C.
