SINGAPORE – February turned out to be the fourth warmest February since 1929, and there will be no respite from the heat in March, the National Environment Agency (NEA) revealed today.

Singapore can expect dry and occasionally windy conditions in the first fortnight of March, in a continuation of the dry weather pattern from the past week.

Short thundery showers can be expected mostly in the afternoon on some days, although NEA cautioned that showers may be heavy at times.

Rainfall across Singapore was above average in February, and so was the mean monthly temperature.

At Seletar where rainfall was the lowest in February, it was already 11 per cent above average.

The highest rainfall of 186mm (68 per cent above average) was recorded in February over the eastern part of Singapore around Changi.

February’s mean monthly temperature was 0.7°C warmer than average, measuring 27.8°C on the mercury, NEA added.
