Next 2 weeks to be windy but dry


Even as the dry weather carries over from the past week into the fortnight ahead, Singaporeans will feel the wind in their hair.

This is because the north-east monsoon, which brought heavy showers in December and January, is reaching its end.

“Based on historical data, by mid- to late March, it should be calmer as inter-monsoon conditions will prevail,” said Assistant Professor Winston Chow of the National University of Singapore’s department of geography.

A Meteorological Service Singapore spokesman said that over the next two weeks, occasional windy conditions with a daily average wind speed of around 15kmh to 30 kmh can be expected. There will likely be localised, short-duration thundery showers in the afternoon on some days.

The temperature is expected to range between 24 deg C and 33 deg C on most days.
