Streaks of lightning light up Bukit Timah

Even though warm weather has been forecasted for the month of June, the storm on 24 Jun was a welcome surprise for many who needed a break from the heat.

So much so that residents across the country whipped out their cameras to snap pictures of the lightning storm.

Facebook user Md Sufri managed to capture the storm as it loomed over the Bukit Timah area, with faint lightning streaks zapping through the evening sky.

Monsoon season is here

According to the Meteorological Service Singapore’s (MSS) weather forecast, we’re well into the Southwest Monsoon, where these storms are to be expected.

If you notice high temperatures in the daytime, it’s most likely that a storm is incoming later that day.

Hopefully when the next storm comes rolling in, you are safe and away from the elements. But you might want to grab your camera to capture the phenomenon like these folks did.
