Temperatures In Singapore Will Drop To 23°C At Night For The Rest Of December 2017

But what there will be, though, is rain. And lightning. Lots of the former, with a fair share of the latter.

The first half of May is shaping up to be electrifying.


In a fortnightly weather outlook published by Meteorological Service Singapore (MSS), we can expect the next two weeks to be filled with “heavy thundery showers”.

These showers will be fairly short-duration, be of moderate to heavy intensity and will likely occur in the afternoon.

They predict that “six to eight days” of the next fortnight will bless us with rainfall and thunder strikes.


Bring me thunder…and lightning

Did you know that May traditionally has the most intense lightning occurrences after November?
